SilentDawn’s review published on Letterboxd:
Alfonso Cuarón has always delved into stories of the present, using their immediacy and their unconquerable energy in order to speak volumes about the long gone or the far out of reach. Y Tu Mamá También, much like the salty ocean beaches that our main characters transverse, is a sublimely warm and nostalgic experience. In a way, watching it is the equivalent of sitting on a sandy shore on a Sunday afternoon. Everything is ahead of you, washing through the waves and crashing in rhythm, but your energy is focused on the present, and your emotions are lost within the scattered memories of the past.
