Y tu Mama tambien

It is an explicitly sexual movie. So if you are not comfortable with raw portrayal of sexuality and explicit dialogs, please stay clear of this one. What else can of you expect from a coming of age movie about two teenage boys set in the beautiful beaches of Mexico?

It is a movie about trips - a sexual discovery trip, a trip to the lovely beaches, a cultural trip through Mexico of the present, a trip through a life with a terminable disease and within these trips there is life, sex, drugs, music, fried fish and beer. Above everything the film is an incredible character study - of two teenagers growing up, their lingo, their acts, their lives and that of the young woman who is facing some of life's worst crises set against the very believable social fabric of current day Mexico.
