Movie Reviews

Solo Con Tu Pareja
John Farr | 07/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In his madcap debut film, the Mexican director of "Y Tu Mama Tambien" somehow fuses a bawdy farce in the grand Hollywood tradition with a modern commentary on HIV and mortality--and makes it work. What begins as a room-to-room sex romp--with Tomás clambering along catwalks between his apartment and that of his friend Mateo (Luis de Icaza), who's helping out in the seduction game--soon takes a sobering turn as the bird-dogging bachelor finds himself wrapped in the arms of both love and death. Assured and lively, fluidly paced and buoyantly acted, "Solo con tu pareja" is a slapstick comedy with a zesty Latin heart."
Great Movie

"Excelent re-Issue of one classic of the New Mexican Cinema. I was a big fan of these movie and the careful re-issue of it did not desapoint me.
Great quality in the transfer and excelletn extras."
Cuaron's Don Giovanni
Stanley H. Nemeth | Garden Grove, CA United States | 12/30/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In his debut feature, Alfonso Cuaron, a leading figure in the current renaissance of Mexican cinema, presents a mostly amusing contemporary take on Mozart's "Don Giovanni." His protagonist Tomas is a modern, Mexico City variant of that unreflective womanizer who recurs in all times and cultures. Like Mozart's Don, Tomas experiences mostly embarrassing comic encounters and little erotic success during the part of his life treated in the film, and at the end he too has a comeuppance, though one more in line with the forgiving, screwball comedy spirit of Blake Edwards or Ernst Lubitsch than that of Mozart's "dramma giocoso."
If the film has a weakness, I would say it's the prolongation of Tomas' early farcical encounters which threaten to grow tiresome and don't fully blend with the film's subtext of social criticism.
Otherwise, this is a movie of considerable merit, and it heralds the future career of a highly talented filmmaker.
Praise should go as well to the beautiful photography and the skillful comic acting of the principal players.
The Criterion DVD is, happily enough, accompanied by an extended interview with the Cuaron brothers and their star Daniel Gimenez Cacho. It is distinguished by wit and charm.
Very Funny Offbeat Comedy
Fellini's Hippocampus | Roma Italy | 10/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is not totally about aids nor does it make light of aids really. It's just a part of the plot of this great dark romantic comedy that even a romantic comedy hater can enjoy! Yes it has people attempting suicide but in hilarious ways!! If anything the wonderfully eccentric actions of the main character Tomas Tomas was worth viewing the movie in itself!"
