Foreign Flicks: Y tu mama tambien

Y tu mama tambien (Alfonso Cauron, 2001)

With Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Maribel Verdu.

I finally decided to check this one out after seeing it pop up on several “best of the decade” lists a few months ago.  It’s basically a road trip movie about two horny teenage boys and the more experienced woman they coerce into riding around with them.  I must say that it is one of the most overtly erotic movies I have ever watched.  It’s a funny, authentic and fearless depiction of sexual exploration and maturity.  We see this woman enforce the bond between the boys while simultaneously driving them apart.  It’s full of surprises, but very open to fully exposing these secrets when the time is right.

Rating: 9/10
