In his madcap debut film, the Mexican director of "Y Tu Mama Tambien" somehow fuses a bawdy farce in the grand Hollywood tradition with a modern commentary on HIV and mortality--and makes it work. What begins as a room-to-room sex romp--with Tomás clambering along catwalks between his apartment and that of his friend Mateo (Luis de Icaza), who's helping out in the seduction game--soon takes a sobering turn as the bird-dogging bachelor finds himself wrapped in the arms of both love and death. Assured and lively, fluidly paced and buoyantly acted, "Solo con tu pareja" is a slapstick comedy with a zesty Latin heart.

Excelent re-Issue of one classic of the New Mexican Cinema. I was a big fan of these movie and the careful re-issue of it did not desapoint me.

Great quality in the transfer and excelletn extras.

In his debut feature, Alfonso Cuaron, a leading figure in the current renaissance of Mexican cinema, presents a mostly amusing contemporary take on Mozart's "Don Giovanni." His protagonist Tomas is a modern, Mexico City variant of that unreflective womanizer who recurs in all times and cultures. Like Mozart's Don, Tomas experiences mostly embarrassing comic encounters and little erotic success during the part of his life treated in the film, and at the end he too has a comeuppance, though one more in line with the forgiving, screwball comedy spirit of Blake Edwards or Ernst Lubitsch than that of Mozart's "dramma giocoso."
If the film has a weakness, I would say it's the prolongation of Tomas' early farcical encounters which threaten to grow tiresome and don't fully blend with the film's subtext of social criticism.
Otherwise, this is a movie of considerable merit, and it heralds the future career of a highly talented filmmaker.
Praise should go as well to the beautiful photography and the skillful comic acting of the principal players.
The Criterion DVD is, happily enough, accompanied by an extended interview with the Cuaron brothers and their star Daniel Gimenez Cacho. It is distinguished by wit and charm.

This is not totally about aids nor does it make light of aids really. It's just a part of the plot of this great dark romantic comedy that even a romantic comedy hater can enjoy! Yes it has people attempting suicide but in hilarious ways!! If anything the wonderfully eccentric actions of the main character Tomas Tomas was worth viewing the movie in itself!

Criterion surely must be one of the top prestige DVD labels in circulation right now, and as such I look forward to their release schedule. Covering bona fide classics, international hits, and also championing smaller and unorthodox films, there is a lot to learned by checking into their exquisite presentations. So being a huge fan of Alfonso Cuarón's "Y tu mamá también" and having watched his evolution in American cinema (capped off by last year's "Children of Men"), I was excited to check out Criterion's presentation of an early Cuarón film--"Sólo con tu pareja." Described here by many as a romantic comedy, I'm going to call it what it is--a pretty traditional sex farce. Anyone familiar with the sex farce genre (particularly international efforts from France and Spain) will instantly recognize many of the elements (both good and bad) which seem to follow this type of film.

Any good sex farce teaches two major lessons--(1) promiscuity or irresponsible sex can be funny and (2) true love and redemption can be found in the arms of a character you either know nothing about or have nothing in common with. "Sólo con tu pareja" adheres to these lessons with precision. Following the escapades of Tomás, a copywriting Don Juan, the film instantly sets up how irresistible he is! Apparently his moderate good looks, bumbling manner, whiny behavior and inconsiderate nature are like catnip to Mexico's most beautiful women (he even beds a bride on her wedding day, rock on)! With plenty of slapstick and sexual frolicking, the first hour of this picture plays out exactly as you might imagine. Then Tomás spies his new neighbor, falls instantly in love (without speaking to her), and becomes even more clumsily endearing (or at least more clumsy).

The years have not passed by this film. True, the reality in Mexico City's everyday life is way worse than then but this movie does not feel nostalgic either. The acting is very good, the story line is better and the photography is the best. The music score is amazingly well integrated into the movie. It is not easy to have Mozart music on a 90's sex comedy set in Mexico City. However it works well, very well.

My memories of this movie are always of Claudia Ramirez and Mozart's Gran Partita.

I would say that this movie stands a bit apart from all other Cuaron films. It is set in Mexico about Mexican midclass pleople and it has a freshness not found in all his other movies, which, I agree, have some other and even more important virtues as well.
