WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Watching this feels like slipping underwater; it's lulling, memorizing, and funny, and then you reach the end and realize it's broken your heart just a bit.

Megan Rochlin Profile picture for Megan Rochlin

When I first watched this movie in high school, my only takeaway was a lifelong crush on actor Gael Garcia Bernal. I recently re-watched this film again recently, and realized how stunningly beautiful and realistic this film is. It really captures the nature of the kind of relationship you can only have when your young; where your so incredibly close but also petty and yeah, really stupid. The movie is funny, and definitely deserves its sexy reputation, but its also incredibly thoughtful and heartbreaking. Also, my boy Gael Garcia Bernal is - and always will be - a snack.

Newsweek by David Ansen

The eroticism in Cuaron’s road movie (which broke all box-office records in Mexico) is the real deal: tactile, sexy, psychologically charged.

Los Angeles Times by Kenneth Turan

Echoes the unmistakable freshness and excitement of the Nouvelle Vague, the sense of joy in being alive and making movies, that made those works distinctive and unforgettable.

Time by Richard Corliss

If this sounds like an old-fashioned sex comedy, it is -- sexy, for sure, and funny, in wild spurts.
