Synopsis: More a lust story than a love story, Alfonso Cuarón’s road movie about a carefree trio of young people (Diego Luna, Gael García Bernal, Maribel Verdú) having a wild sex-filled summer together is, as we might expect from Cuarón, deceptively deep and full of interesting subtext.

Now, both of them have to adapt to each other — Armando to the unknown, homosexual world of his father, and Diego to the closed attitude of his teenage son.
