Y tu mamá también / Et même ta mère (2001) Alfonso Cuarón, Maribel Verdú, Gael García Bernal, Daniel Giménez Cacho, Adventure, Comedy, Drama
Mexican-born, New York-based filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón directed this Mexican box-office smash hit about a pair of randy upper-class buddies that sparked some controversy for its frank depiction of drug use and sexual exploration. With their respective girlfriends away in Europe, Julio (Gael García Bernal) and his upper-class friend Tenoch (Diego Luna) are looking forward to a summer full of drink, drugs, and cheap meaningless sex. During a wedding, they meet Luisa (Maribel Verdú) – the 28-year-old wife of Tenoch’s scholarly cousin – and try to convince her to go on a road trip to Heaven’s Mouth, a made-up beach paradise the two claim is on the Oaxacan coast.
