not a happy goodbye but a tender one, a farewell on multiple accounts and a porno of the softest kinds. purring up a libido with hard & raw flavor of teenage boy lust & curiosity (each their own style) & the full moon of her grace howling for a sensation greater than sex, to feel vulnerable & powerful & indulge into territory that only the currents of life can prepare. radical in both nourishment & neglect
Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN is Alfonso Cuarón's feel-good movie. It's funny, exciting, and entertaining. Maybe for other people, Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN is a masterpiece from Mr. Cuarón. But in my opinion, it's just a feel-good road movie. I feel the political background of this movie is less explored. The good thing is - it has some interesting characters. Not to mention its impressive cinematography from Emmanuel Lubezki...
I have a special bond with this movie ever since I've seen it on national television. It is one that really struck me. The story, however modest, is beautifully depicted as a road trip with a double culmination. But more than that it is just so darn erotic, and not in a cheap way. Moreover it is a truly elegant kind of eroticism, at times broken by the hard cuts in sound and hints of social realism in the background.
If French Nouveau and Mexican cinema had a baby, "Y Tu Mamá También" would be the glorious offspring. This road trip drama takes the audience on an emotional joyride that will leave you in poignant reflection on coming-of-age and coming to terms with mortality in the corrupted, yet beautiful modern-day Mexico. Maribel Verdú gives a damn-near perfect performance.
Y Tu Mama Tambien is made perfect by it's imperfections. Beyond any single element, YTMT's greatest achievement is its aura. Few films match form to content like this. Much more than an ode to the French New Wave, Cuaron mimics life and character like few have tried. It's unconventional but so is life. After 15 years, Y Tu Mama Tambien blew me away just like it did the first time. A film that lives in my heart.
