LAB CLASSICS: Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN
Want to feel really old? Yeah, it’s already twenty years ago that we were swept of our feet by Alfonso Cuarón’s Mexican box-office smash hit Y Tu Mamá También. So this beloved, funny and moving look at human desire returns to our cinema for a limited time!
This smash road comedy from Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón is that rare movie to combine raunchy subject matter and emotional warmth. Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna shot to international stardom as a pair of horny Mexico City teenagers from different classes who, after their girlfriends jet off to Italy for the summer, are bewitched by a gorgeous older Spanish woman (Maribel Verdú) they meet at a wedding. When she agrees to accompany them on a trip to a faraway beach, the three form an increasingly intense and sensual alliance that ultimately strips them both physically and emotionally bare. Shot with elegance and dexterity by the great Emmanuel Lubezki, Y tu mamá también is a funny and moving look at human desire.
