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.
