Our regular Latin American Cinema screening this month comes from Mexico. We are showing the highly acclaimed and multi-award winner Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN (And your mother too) a film by Alfonso Cuarón.

This smash road comedy from Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón is that rare movie that manages 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 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 dalliance that ultimately strips them both physically and emotionally bare. Shot with elegance and dexterity, Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN is a funny and moving look at human desire.

Raunchy, smart, ebullient, melancholy, insightful, surprising, funny, frank and sexy as all get-out.
