    Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN - Dual Format Blu-ray/DVD Edition & DVD Only Edition
    The smash road comedy from the Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) is that rare movie to combine raunchy subject matter and emotional warmth. Gael García Bernal (Amores perros) and Diego Luna (Milk) shot to international stardom as a pair of horny Mexico City teenagers from different classes who, after their girlfriends jet off to Italy for the summer, are bewitched by a gorgeous older Spanish woman (Belle époque’s Maribel Verdú) they meet at a wedding. When she agrees to accompany them on a trip to a faraway beach, the three form an increasingly intense and sensual alliance that ultimately strips them both physically and emotionally bare. Shot with elegance and dexterity by the great Emmanuel Lubezki (The Tree of Life), Y tu mamá también is a funny and moving look at human desire.

    I posted this on the general Criterion announcement thread too... I was a little surprised to read "New 2K digital restoration" --- surely a ten year old movie produced in the modern era doesn't need to be restored? Can the negative really be in such bad shape? Or has Criterion joined the unfortunate bandwagon of calling every new scan a "restoration"? Or is there some history to this film I wasn't aware of that would necessitate restoration work being done?

    It's a good movie and I may pick it up.. it just didn't strike me as a title, based on its production year, that was in need of restoration work.

    Does anyone know for sure if this is 2k or 4k? The press release and back cover say 2k, the "About this transfer" section of the booklet says 4k.
