~ Y tu mamá también ~

04 January 2004

i’m almost 4 years late on this, but ari brought a few DVDs with him, and one of them is Y tu mamá también, which i hadn’t seen. so, we decided to watched the movie last night and i regretted that i didn’t see it earlier when it was still playing in the theater when i was still in NYC.

Y tu mamá también, if you havent’ seen it or even heard it, is about two teenager taking an older woman on a road trip to a non-existent beach. their goal is to sleep with her. yeah, it has a lot of graphic sex scene. as a matter of fact, the first scene in the movie was a view of teenager’s butt, ramming his girlfriend. yikes!

but the movie goes beyond that (of course). ari and i think it’s mostly a comedy — we had a good laugh here and there, especially at the random commentary from the narrator — but it also has some drama-ish quality. the characters in the movie is strangely believable.

what i think the most interesting is, how shallow and fragile friendship is between teenagers. this movie makes me think of what i had in mind when i was a teenager, hanging around with group of my friends. hmm…

it was an excellent movie.

i always like non-american movies better. Or maybe non-hollywood movies. Sometime, indie movies are also great. Mexican movies seems more open about sex hahahhahaha before I thought only european. if you watch “dream about you” and “homework”, the sex scenes in Y tu mama tambien aren’t that surprise, hahha….
If you still live in US you can rent more foreign movies from greencine.com.

:( i don’t like in the US anymore… yeah, i’m a fan of indie and foreign movies as well. and it’s true, that a lot of foreign movies, surprisingly, are much open and graphic about sex. you should gimme some recommendation here :)

I personally didn’t like the movie. I’m too conservative to enjoy movies of this nature. I didn’t even like American Beauty because to me, it was disgusting- an older man lusting after some cheerleader.

Gael Garcia Bernal is enough of a reason to see the movie! Did you see Amores Perros & El Crimen Del Padre Amaro? GOTTA SEE those too! Btw, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
