The enormous economic gap between the haves and have-nots in modern Mexico is a subtle undercurrent in Alfonso Cuaron's dark comedy Y Tu Mamá También. Two post-high school teens, rich preppie Tenoch and his middle-class buddy Julio, find themselves directionless and bored when their girlfriends leave for Italy for the summer. The boys' fortunes change when they hook up with Luisa, the sexy, older wife of Tenoch's cousin--recently separated from her philandering husband--and embark on a farcical road trip. What starts as a happy-go-lucky quest to the find the mythical Heaven's Mouth beach turns into an acrimonious, tense examination of their relationships with each other and their partners. Y Tu Mamá También is the kind of lively, provocative, yet bittersweet movie that rarely gets made in North America anymore. It explores sex, death, poverty, and adultery in a frank, sometimes startling manner. In its bluntness and willingness to confront difficult issues head-on, it represents everything good 21st-century filmmaking should be about. --Adem Tepedelen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This is a good coming of age movie and I have watched it several times. The story says as much as the teens lives as it does the society of MexicoPublished 20 months ago by E. A. Schattschneider
Stay away from this blu-ray version, it is 1080i NOT 1080p and the transfer quality sucks. It's a great, great movie but wait until Criterion releases it... Read morePublished on Feb. 1 2013 by Filmfan
