On surface level it's a buddy-road trip movie but this film travels to much deeper depths and sucks you in. The camerawork and narration added another layer to this film by fleshing out the whole world in which Tenoch, Julio, and Luisa inhabit; by means of educating the viewer on their individual backgrounds as well as the events which surround them. Loved this film!
Beautiful video essay looks back at the work of Alfonso Cuaron!
My favorite Cuaron film! And my personal favorite V.O. ever committed to film. Narrative poetry....
Not quite sure how I feel about this one except that I largely enjoyed it. Definitely warrants a second viewing. This is a film with something to say.
Stunning movie. The road trip is something of a rites of passage for Tenoch and Julio which is counterpointed against Luisa's own acutely poignant story line and and a backdrop of the social and political conditions in Mexico.
You get fly-on-the-wall perspective on all three of their lives and you just cannot help feel for them and sometimes identify with them too.
Loved this so much.
In the spirit of Rohmer, Truffaut and sparks of early Godard, Y tu mamá también manages to speak honestly about Mexico like few had done for decades. Though frequently cited as a self discovery or a road movie, to me its central thesis is to find a new aesthetic that can expose the qualities that together compose contemporary Mexico.
Freedom, adolescence, sex, and life itself are discussed and experienced in this road comedy that ends so unexpectedly that you want to immediately watch it again to see Verdu's performance in a new light.
One of my favourites because it epitomises the passion for freedom and experience. The narration reveals the secret triggers inside the individual. The film resonates with me because of the juxtaposition between naivety and knowing, freedom and the inescapable
Incredible film. Nothing compares to that moment when Brian Eno's "By This River" starts playing on the car stereo while the bored camera glances outside the window. Although I felt the car should have got an upgrade.
The curious, hand-held, free-roaming camera put me in touch with that joyous youthful innocence that fades with time. A beautiful coming-of-age film.
that movie with the sexy mexicans
Diego y Gael reunidos = <3.
wan of the koolest road-movie eper
One of my personal favorite road movies. Cuarón manages to bring forth his signature upfront sexual style, while also calling back on classic road movies such as 'Wild at Heart' and 'Easy Rider'
Films like this should be done more frequently. A beautiful piece of life.
A porno comedy with brains.
my most favorite part is the fact that it ends to a brian eno's song
Loved the the main three, especially the guys did a great job. Props to Bernal, as always. Alfonso... I tvayu mamu tozhe xD
so luisa's adventure is not so heroic after all. she might have been shier if she wanted to return to another life, facing the consequences of her seemingly selfless offering of herself. but she was going to death and, like in the medieval danse macabre of those doomed by plague, she threw away the inhibitions. not to make things different, but to renounce things at all. what if she continued living? this saga would
