Y Tu Mamá También

Y Tu Mamá También ★★★★★

Julio, Tenoch, and Luisa are absolutely perfect and realistic characters. It almost feels like a documentary, not only because of the quick cuts and omniscient narrator, but it actually seems like we are following their genuine lives. Cuarón created a setting that not only capsulates their individual lives, but also presents us with an entirely different side of Mexico struck with poverty and corruption. Either way, both are equally beautiful.

I wasn't planning on giving this a 5 until the end. The last 30 minutes, especially the long take in the beach restaurant, all changed my mind. The dialogue is intense and alluring, and it displays the chemistry of the characters to full effect. They perfectly wrapped up every last bit of the story here and the final scene is the cherry on top.
