Solo con tu pareja

Alfonso Cuaron, director of Y tu mama tambien made this delightful, mildly surreal and, at times, quite serious film in 1991. This movie is about relationships, people growing up, AIDS and Mexico City. The humor in this film is just great, endlessly poking fun at the oddities of men, women and their relationships while treating the serious issue of AIDS with respect. In this film all relationships are heterosexual and it is in this community that issues surrounding AIDS and its impact on individuals are discussed. I also quite enjoyed the lazy pacing of the film, it added a certain dreaminess to the film and that may be what I’m calling surreal. Well, anyway, here is a far better synopsis from the Criterion Collection, the version that I saw, than I have time write.
