Religion=Sex
1 October 2004 | by (Belgium, Brussels) – See all my reviews

After the screenplay of Y tu mama tambien (and your mother too), Carlos Cuarón pursues his critic of the new Mexican high class society, this time through out the filter of religion. The first 4 minutes of the film announce the tricky structure of this short. The protagonist of the short is not the father who open the film by his entry in the house, or the sequence of him getting his clothes out in front of the closet. The real protagonist is the one seeing the father getting undressed and the one ending the film by his scream. So is the house full of religious representations but not full of quite pious people. In anti religious way Cuarón tells us to not believe all we see.
