Y Tu Mama Tambien

Friday, 17 January 2003

after seeing Y tu Mam Tambien last evening i decided to go with a song by nonpoint called orgullo. that’s spanish for pride. the whole song is in spanish, so i only understand one word in ten but it still kicks ass. as for the movie, its been awhile since i’ve seen unorthodox editing and handheld camera work so well in a film without calling too much attention to itself. personally, i thought the movie was great. an aquaintance of mine who was also there thought it was horrible. too much sex and cursing and nothing happening. he asked if most foreign films were like this. i told him they were usually much more frank about life in general, including sex, than american films, but that you’re mom too went a bit farther even for that. my coming of age was never like that.
