Small details are the reason why I love this movie
20 August 2012 | by alxbarraSee all my reviews

Solo Con Tu Pareja, one of the most original films ever made in Mexican cinema (along with Cronos). This might not be the best Mexican movie but al least is my favorite one, It's such a fun movie to watch. Lubenski's photography (as always) is great, the art direction is interesting and the actings are good. I admit this is not a perfect movie the climax is kind of dumb, but what can i say, there is something about this film that i just love. Maybe is the old stereotype that we mexicans do about ourselves.

Solo con tu pareja is a pornographic comedy that involves drunk Asian people, microwave suicide dogs, homemade jalapeños' slogan, little paper cones, suicide, and sex. Those little details are what i love about this movie, like Tomas running for the newspaper completely naked every morning.
