Y Tu Mamá También
Y Tu Mamá También is a 2001 Mexican road film blending drama, comedy, and sex, directed by Alfonso Cuarón and co-written by him and his brother Carlos. It stars Mexican actors Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal and Spanish actress Maribel Verdú.
The film opens with two teenaged best friends—working-class Julio (Gael García Bernal) and upper-class Tenoch (Diego Luna)—each having sex with their respective girlfriends before the girls depart on a trip to Italy. Without their girlfriends around, the boys take the opportunity to live as bachelors.
