Y Tu Mamá También ★★★★★

Honest, true, raw, sad, euphoric. This is a film about staying young at heart even though life will sweep you away. Its about crying when you need to and loving when you need to— its about facing life with passion, no matter what is thrown your way. About the obliviousness of youth, how everything fades away, how we push it away, the water washes it away— yet lurking around us all is the mythology of our land and the harsh truth of what things become.

Politics and poverty are intersections along their road, echoes from a past, or an insouciant narration of the future.

A sexual energy bubbles and crackles between the three main characters, but its never gratuitous or unnecessary... it just is.

Sinking into a pool clogged with leaves.

Running along the beach, shedding your clothes, diving into the water—

“Life is like the surf, so give yourself away like the sea.”

Damn.
