tu mama tambien is a truly enjoyable film that speaks of universal
themes. It's such fun, fresh, exciting, stylish, and highly
original filmmaking despite dealing with issues and narrative
that has been used countless ties. Their acting, directing,
and cinematography are all tremendous, but it's the films
energy and brilliant script that set it apart. The film doesn't
shy from finding the truth within it's characters. In many
ways, Y tu mama tambien can be viewed as a modern reimaginations
of Francois Truffaut's Jules and Jim, with this film much
less bashful (and ultimately more truthful) in it's sexuality.
There's also a beautiful use of voice narration, which draws
comparison to the work of Jean-Luc Godard. However, comparisons
are unfair, because Y tu mama tambien is a wonderfully original
film. From the very opening frame (a couple having sex underneath
a Harold and Maude film poster!!) it's obvious this film is
a rare and exciting experience. Aside from it's touching and
heartbreaking examines and difficulties of youth and friendship,
the film also has an intelligent political undertone throughout
(all beit calm in it's approach). Y tu mama tambien is fascinating
and authentic filmmaking which connects on all levels of cinema.
It's a film audiences will relate to and never forget it's
impact or pleasures.
