Y Tu Mamá También

Y Tu Mamá También ★★★★★

“la vida es como la espuma, por eso hay que darse como el mar.”

that single quote hurts even more when you realize that’s exactly what luisa is doing. she’s giving herself away to the sea and enjoying it. she floats. she smiles. she’s letting go of everything that was keeping her from being happy before. without her even realizing it, julio and tenoch entered her life at the moment she needed them the most and the two of them are the only people she actually says goodbye to. their trip to the beach is somehow rushed, yet she finds a way to make it peaceful. she is letting herself go in her own way. even if her future is defined by her sickness, she doesn’t let this ruin what would end up being her last days. i admire luisa’s courage and the way she perceives life so much. she asks the boys if they would want to live forever, knowing that she is obviously not going to. she’s so certain of what’s going to happen to her and yet she finds a way to be happy, even happier than she was before. y tu mamá también is just so special to me and with every rewatch i love it more. isn’t it so heartbreaking how sex brings these three people together but it also tears some of them apart...
