Info
Two teenaged best friends, Julio and Tenoch, decide to take a trip together when their respective girlfriends depart for a vacation to Italy. At a wedding they meet Luisa, the wife  of Jano, Tenoch’s cousin. Luisa  is sexy, worldly, and ten years older than Julio and Tenoch. The boys encourage Luisa to join them  as they head  to a secluded beach called Boca del Cielo. At first Luisa is reluctant, but when she hears  her husband Jano was cheating on her, she agrees. The three set off, driving through rural Mexico. They pass the time talking about past relationships and sexual experiences. After a tearful Luisa leaves a message on Jano’s telephone that their marriage is over, she is compelled to explain to Julio and Tenoch about the meaning of a true sexual relationship. It ends up being a trip Julio, Tenoch, and Luisa will never forget.

Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN is an exuberant exercise in interlocking stories. But these stories interlock not in space and time, but in what is revealed, what is concealed, and in the parallel world of poverty through which the rich characters move.

Alfonso Cuarón works with a quicksilver fluidity, and the movie is fast, funny, unafraid of sexuality and finally devastating. The director’s lucid storytelling skills and his instinct for getting at unsettling emotional states are huge parts of this film’s power.
