Mexican-born, New York-based filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón directed this Mexican box-office smash hit about a pair of randy upper-class buddies that sparked some controversy for its frank depiction of drug use and sexual exploration. With their respective girlfriends away in Europe, Julio (Gael García Bernal) and his upper-class friend Tenoch (Diego Luna) are looking forward to a summer full of drink, drugs, and cheap meaningless sex. During a wedding, they meet Luisa (Maribel Verdú) -- the 28-year-old wife of Tenoch's scholarly cousin -- and try to convince her to go on a road trip to Heaven's Mouth, a made-up beach paradise the two claim is on the Oaxacan coast. To their surprise, Luisa -- who is looking to escape her troubled life for a spell -- agrees to go along. Two days into the trip, tension starts to build between the two friends: Luisa has had sex with each, and now both lads are not-so-quietly vying for her affection. Soon simmering jealousies boil over into savage arguments, threatening to completely destroy their friendship. After an enormously successful run in Mexico and Guatemala, this film was screened to much acclaim at the 2001 Venice, Toronto, and New York Film Festivals.

After all the sex jokes have ceased. This movie continues to be moving powerhouse. It deals with friendship and love in an honest way, instead of reaching the untainable goal of getting a cheerleader. The characters in the flim you actually begin to care about and their well being. This movie also brings to light the social and economic problems of Mexico with it being too preachy. In all this movie should be seen as a lesson of life and how we think it will turn one way but it becomes another. enjoy!
THIS MOVIE IS SOO KOOL. I SAW IT IN THE MOVIES THE FIRST DAY IT CAME OUT . ITS A GOOD MOVIE AND I RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO PEOPLE WHO LIKE SEEING THE REAL WORLD . THIS MOVIE IS SO REAL ITS LIKE IF U KNOW OR KNEW SOMEONE LIKE THIS OR MAYBE U WERE LIKE THESES ACTORS IN THE MOVIE.
This was one of the best movies that i have seen in a while i have told everyone of my friends to watch this movie. The story is a story of two friends and how certain circumstance can change all that. This is a must see. Even if you dont buy this movie right away go rent it and then i asure you that will want to add this DVD to your ever growing collection of great movies
OK I have to admit I had to buy this movie after reading such rave reviews in magazines, and boy am I glad I bought it. This movie is so honest and blunt that it feels like when your watching each scene that you are there invading someones moment in life, the lines , the actors, the narration was done superbly, I love it and I will watch it again and again. I recommend to get the unrated version of the dvd because you can get a taste of what the actors and directors really are like and also see another hilarious and sex filled lil movie of older people in mexico , I just have to say it again, I love that I bought this movie, GREAT ACTORS !
Had no prior idea as to what this film was about.Was i pleasantly surprised. Acting was first class and the mix of humour, passion and darkness was crafted and directed to perfection.Just quite superb and such a refreshing change to feel so uplifted and inspired at the cinema.
Una pelicula que detalla lo que sucede hoy en la vida real y que ya los productores no se estan ocultando para demostrarlo.
this is one of the most touching and honest films I've ever seen. the characters are heartbreakingly human and the plot is true to life. highly recommended to any independent film fan.
I thought it was great. The story, the acting, Diego. All of it. Not just because I have a crush on Diego, it was a really good movie. But, I would like to say, that I do have a big crush on Diego.
I saw this little jewel of a movie on the Independent Film Channel. I didn't know what to think with the title,( my Spanish is severly limited), but quickly got into the film and was highly impressed with the acting, script, story, all of it. I intend to add this one to my collection.
I want all of my friends to see this movie without judging me for all of the risqué scenes. Very touching.
Mexican movie, dealing heavily with sexuality, politics, economic classes and even religion in the Mexican community. It shows very accurately how things work in Mexico. People can relate to the story one way or another. It is fearless to show how crude life really is.
The story of the two best friends who through the movie fight and then go through very weird things.
