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. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Library Journal Review

A pair of testosterone-driven teen boys (Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna) from different sides of the tracks invite an older woman (Maribel Verdu) they've just met to go on a road trip to an out-of-the-way beach. Alfonzo Cuaron (Children of Men; Gravity) navigates a larky outing into an increasingly moving coming-of-age story set against a political and economic backdrop that only deepens the life-changing journey. Digitally restored, this extras-laden award winner is a must for fans of adult-material international cinema. [See Trailers, LJ 7/14.] (c) Copyright 2014.
