Y tu mamá también

(Alfonso Cuarón, 2001, Mexico, 106 minutes)

In a career that has seen him hop ably back and forth between his native Mexico (Roma) and the Hollywood system (Children of Men, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban), director Alfonso Cuarón started to really show his hand at what all he was capable of with his 2001 Mexican effort, Y tu mamá también (“and your mother too”). It came on the heels of his international festival breakthrough Sólo con tu pareja (1991) and capable Hollywood efforts The Little Princess (1995) and the Ethan Hawke / Gwyneth Paltrow Great Expectations (1998) but feels far more personal and invigorating than any of these. In it we have two horny teenagers (played by future international superstars Gael García Bernal, hot on the heels of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Amores perros the year prior, and Diego Luna, later of Rogue One, Milk, and many more) who go on a road trip with an older married woman Luisa (Maribel Verdú, later of Pan’s Labyrinth) whom they’re lusting after. A perfect sweaty road trip movie to help inaugurate summer, Y tu mamá también is likely to find some young new fans from the Challengers set besides.

In Spanish with English subtitles.
