News & Interviews for Solo Con Tu Pareja
Critic Reviews for Solo Con Tu Pareja
Cuaron demonstrates his capacity as a director. The camera work is impressive, his sense of humor sharp, and the characters are well defined.
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.
Solo Con Tu Pareja is not as mature as Y Tu Mama Tambien, but it is consistently funny.
Like Y Tu Mamá También, Alfonso Cuaróns first feature, made 15 years ago, is a rambunctious sex comedy shadowed by mortality.
Pushing the dull Cacho as a chick magnet capable of opening any pair of legs suggests that Cuarón's respect for women has gained serious ground since he was 29.
Audience Reviews for Solo Con Tu Pareja
A fine first film by Alfonso Cuarón and you can see his talent throughout this oddball comedy.
"Pick a peck of pickled pepper..." 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.
Good dark comedy. Alfonso Cuarón's first film shows raw talent, that he would later polish in the awesome Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN and the masterpiece CHILDREN OF MEN. The script is sharp and very funny, presenting a great original story. The camera work is impressive, as well as the exterior shots. Daniel Giménez Cacho, one of Mexico's finest actors, is incredible here. My only complaint is the climax. It seemed as if the movie resolved itself too quickly, and the characters were driven to suicide by something that happened only moments before. The style and comedic tone reminded me a little of early Almodóvar.
