Love the One You're With
26 May 2015 | by EdgarSTSee all my reviews

Another good film by Fernando Eimbcke about youngsters' life experiences, on the opposite side of Larry Clark's movies in terms of explicitness, or any other silly, boisterous film about male and female adolescents "in heat", wanting to lose their virginity. Eimbcke's young people Héctor (Lucio Giménez Cacho Goded) and Jazmín (Danae Reynaud) are rather deprived of what is commonly assumed as social grace, they are a bit on the overweight side and not very expressive (though surprisingly Héctor is quite direct about his need, and Jazmín is able to perform a pelvic dance as any sexy rumbera of yesterday): maybe it is their Catholic upbringing (not mentioned, but sensed), the dominant mother (in contrast to the only father figure seen on screen: an invalid old man) or those peculiar, uptight behavior patterns we tend to associate with middle class, that all make Héctor and Jazmín so vulnerable in their search for sexual discovery. A welcome film that gives space to those unpopular adolescents who are usually looked down on by their peers.
