More than a soft-core skin flick, Y Tu Mama Tambien may be one of the most important political films of the decade. Early on, with its rather shocking opening scene, Y Tu Mama promises to be a coming of age film, but Alfonso Cuarón, rather precisely, peppers the film with political mind-views, class struggles and economic blips. It’s hard not to notice them, especially as the film begins its road-trip to the almost mythical beach of Bocca Del Cielo. Y Tu Mama is often beautiful, heartbreaking and fascinating: a complex and textured swan song to bygone eras of innocence and a send-off into the swell madness of adulthood and politicized existence.
