  • Cuaron demonstrates his capacity as a director. The camera work is impressive, his sense of humor sharp, and the characters are well defined.

    October 20, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • First released in 1991, Alfonso Cuaron's Solo Con Tu Pareja (Only With Your Partner) is a manic puff of nonsense that plays off the AIDS panic of the preceding decade.

    September 21, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
  • Solo Con Tu Pareja is not as mature as Y Tu Mama Tambien, but it is consistently funny.

    September 20, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Like Y Tu Mamá También, Alfonso Cuaróns first feature, made 15 years ago, is a rambunctious sex comedy shadowed by mortality.

    September 19, 2006 | Rating: 3/5
  • Pushing the dull Cacho as a chick magnet capable of opening any pair of legs suggests that Cuarn's respect for women has gained serious ground since he was 29.

Audience Reviews for Love in the Time of Hysteria

  • Apr 27, 2020
    Silly, predictable, melodramatic, but entertaining.

    A feature that shows much more than what foreign audiences will understand. The dream sequence in the middle pretty much sums up the emotional explosions released during the beginning of the 90s in the typical middle-class man, a collective euphoria shared throughout the country mainly because of unemployment and an increasing financial crisis, leading to a lack of a solid direction in one's life. But Cuaron's focus does not really go there throughout. His approach to Almodóvar represented not only a solid return to the odd days of black/sexual comedy, but also the salvation of Mexican cinema. This was the first significant feature that caught the attention of those viewers that resorted to foreign celluloid offers rather than insisting in the decaying national film industry. 76/100

    A fine first film by Alfonso Cuarón and you can see his talent throughout this oddball comedy.

    <i>"Pick a peck of pickled pepper..."</i> Young yuppie and womanizer Tomas (Gimenez Cacho) is caught in a trap when falsely diagnosed with AIDS by Silvia (Liubomirova), a nurse who finds herself cheated by the young Casanova. <center><font size=+2 face="Century Schoolbook"><b><u>REVIEW</u></b></font></center> Tomas Tomas is an enthusiastic playboy adamant about not using condoms. When a scorned fling is put in a situation perfect for payback, she falsely marks his AIDS test positive, setting him off on a darkly comic quest to kill himself, but not before the love of his life finds out her husband is cheating on her and decides to end her own life as well. Tomas takes this opportunity to take her with him into death, as the one woman in his life, as far as we know, that he has a shred of respect for. This is revealed as he makes a list of the women he's slept with, laughing as he remembers their nick names, not necessarily even their real ones. Visually, this film marks a point before Cuaron adopted his now staple handicam cinematography. The shots are graceful and smooth, the editing the same. It was gorgeous, with more than one shot inserted solely for the composition (off the top of my head, the vial of Tomas' blood filling up in front of a black background, though the room was white) At more than one time I felt like pausing the film just to take in the images. While it marks a step toward what he will become, Solo Con Tu Pareja is a much more accessible and enjoyable film than the challenging ones that Cuaron eventually becomes known for. As a ribald comedy it succeeds, and it may be due to it's not trying to be. I'm not saying it's trying to be popcorn, but it also doesn't strive to change lives.
