Product Description


Dans la veine des réalisations latino-américaines destinées à un vaste public et soutenues financièrement par les États-Unis, Y tu mamá también, du Mexicain Alfonso Cuarón, est un road movie particulièrement percutant, dont l’apparente légèreté ne sert qu’à masquer un fond beaucoup plus acide.

Lorsque Julio et Tenoch, deux adolescents désœuvrés de conditions sociales différentes, rencontrent Luisa, une ravissante jeune femme espagnole, ils décident de lui faire visiter le Mexique en l’emmenant vers une plage imaginaire qu’ils surnomment la Bouche du paradis. Guidé essentiellement par ses désirs, ce trio amoureux verra rapidement les dessous troubles de sa liberté de façade se révéler au grand jour.

Grâce à une réalisation nerveuse et à des acteurs frais et envoûtants (Maribel Verdú, Diego Luna et Gael García Bernal, qui avait déjà soutenu l’excellent Amores Perros), ce Jules et Jim piquant et ambigu, parfois féroce, est une virée excessive où le passage à l’âge adulte est envisagé comme un véritable rite initiatique, auquel amour et amitié ne peuvent réellement résister. Ce constat amer est tout de même tempéré par des scènes vives et fortes où éclatent toute l’insouciance et la fougue de la jeunesse. Malgré une voix hors champ parfois mal intégrée et une fin quelque peu prévisible, Y tu mamá también reste une surprise cinématographique insolente et sensuelle. --Helen Faradji

OK, the movie has a lot of sex in it, and the characters talk about sex a lot. If that bothers you, I suggest you don't watch it.

But to say the movie is the Mexican equivalent of "American Pie" or "Porky's" is absurd. I'm pretty sure the director's goals were to produce something a bit more artistic than that. And to call the movie "pedophilistic", as one reviewer did! - the boys in question have graduated from high school and appear in fact to be men. And the woman they're travelling with is 29, hardly the pathetic older woman of one review. Plus it is Mexico, not Spain.

The movie is set in Mexico and is a meditation about and/or indictment of the huge class disparities of the country, and an examination of how Mexico is modernizing. It's about sex, too, of course - I got out of it that behind the macho posturing of many men, there is a yearning for closeness and connection with other men, which they cannot acknowledge. Except sometimes, when they're drunk, for example, as in the scene in this movie that so bothered some reviewers.

The movie is well-made, the dialogue is interesting - the characters actually talk, not just give enough info to move the plot along, as in so many action films - the acting is excellent, and you get to see a lot of Mexico, both the city and the country, the rich, the poor, and the middle-class.

On the technical side, the DVD transfer seems fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars wait for a better release Feb. 1 2013
By Filmfan TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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...there is a rumour that they will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie with feeling March 18 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 Mexico

1.0 out of 5 stars IT COULDN'T BE ANY WORSE! May 30 2003
By A Customer
I was so dissapointed with this movie. I would like to know why they decided to promote this piece of junk. So much hype. There is no drama, no point of interest in the movie. A long road to the beach? I could grag a camera and go to the beach and make it better than this.

Don't be deceived with the title, it does not have anything to do with the movie. It is so unfortunate, I mean the best part of the movie is just watching the pigs running next to the beach. I could have seen that somewhere else!. ...

1.0 out of 5 stars hahahahahaha May 1 2003
By A Customer
Wow. You think people would learn after the horrendous Great Expectations (Gweneth Paltrow emotes like an anoerexic Valley Girl), Hollywood would have learned to not let this director near another project. But no such luck---and once again, he decided that a good story wasn;t worth it, so he manipulates it to a degree unheard of before this.
Working with only the brainlessness Hollywood joke can, he decides to insult us by claiming uniqueness and making the story set in Mexico. Then he adds two boys for one girl so we can watch a feminist version of a good time--sleeping around.
There is the only thing that garners praise in hollywood---sex. As long as you call it beautiful, they'll love you. Not surprising from a group of people so empty they decided to make American Pie and Can't hardly Wait.
Hilariously bad. Can't wait for the sequel--And Your Little Dog, Too.

1.0 out of 5 stars deeply disappointed....juvenile trash April 17 2003
By A Customer
I was sucked into all the hype about this movie which is perhaps one reason I was so disappointed. I enjoy foreign art movies. This wasn't one of them. Maybe I'm just too uptight for such juvenile stuff....maybe I missed too much in translation....maybe guys find this type of movie more entertaining...whatever. I ended up donating my copy to the local public library because I knew I'd never watch it again. Big on farting jokes....jerk-off jokes....boring.

1.0 out of 5 stars So what? April 6 2003
This movie was a pointless waste of film stock. I had heard many great things about this movie, and expected to rent it and be faced with an intelligent, provocative portrait of humanity. I got soft-core Mexican porn with no story.
Every character in this movie irritated me. Both the boys were immature, hypocritical and annoying. I hated them both. Also, that is not how seventeen year old boys act, no matter what their nationality. Luisa was a sad degenerate who was just as pathetic as anybody else in the film. Well, that's just my opinion.
I didn't mind the sex, but after a while it got incredibly predictable, and very annoying. For a film, the sex was very natural, but it never added anything to develop characters or bring the story along.
What bothered me most about this mess of a movie was the lack of plot. Nothing really happened. The film skips from sex scene to sex scene on a web of juvenile jokes and mindless exposition. These are occasionally mixed with totally pointless gross-out scenes, like when both boys "help themselves" on diving boards over a pool. Character developement? Not here. When a revelation finally comes, you already guessed it twenty minutes ago and you don't care.
By far the best part of this movie was the narrator. The crystal-clear lucidity he brought to moments in the film was beautiful, especially in the end. His omniscient commentary almost makes the movie worth watching, but there just isn't enough of it. Before the narrator speaks, the sound cuts out abruptly, jarring the viewer out of the flow of the film. The first time it happened I thought there was something wrong with my DVD player.
Overall, a very bad and over-hyped movie. Don't waste your time or money.
