Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the influence of French New Wave on new punk cinema. It presents an analysis of a new punk film that exemplifies the legacy of the New Wave at its best, Alfonso Cuarón's Y Tu Mamá También (2001). The film rejects the overheated, ‘crazy-love’ narratives of youth-oriented films, preferring a more contemplative, hesitant mood.
