4.0 out of 5 stars Milk!! 7 May 2012
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In Bigas Lunas' final part of his 'Iberian passion trilogy', The Tit & the Moon is both a refreshingly open foray into the fantasies of the female flesh by a young boy, Tete (Biel Duan) but also one with more of a message.

In his mind, breast milk means love, as his mother's maternal affections turn totally to his baby brother. When she breast-feeds him and he nuzzles up and is content and happy - and Tete is not, Tete soon decides that what he needs from Life is a breast all to himself.

On a silvery, moonlit beach, one night, he prays for such and soon a French couple, a cabaret double act, move in locally and his fascinations and fantasies turn to her. She's (Mathilda May) a knowing and sexy sort of circus dancer - dark and seductive.

Whilst the film deals openly and slightly naughtily about sex, desire and womanly seduction, it never feels dirty or squalid, though you wouldn't make it the no. 1 choice to show to your Granny. The humour is earthy and natural, whilst as with the best of European cinema, there's that hint of fantasy and a heightened, fiery emotion.

The Tit &... is gentler and less charged than the other two of Luna's trilogy - arguably Jamon Jamon is better, Goldenballs a bit of a bad mistake and this, with its narration by the young boy, it's more akin to Cinema Paradiso. It also has a certain charm about it and in some ways, The Tit &... could be my favourite of Lunas' trilogy.

This film deals with the mixture of emotions you encounter when entering puberty. A young boy becomes infactuated by a circus act assisstant. On one side the boy is looking for a mother figure and is comforted by the assistant, but on the other hand is beginning to develope urges for her. .... He attempts to win her heart, even though he is only about twelve years old. He grdually gets involved in her life and becomes emotionally attached. The ending captures the pain and torment you can encounter when you become infactuated by someone you can't have. The film leaves you wondering about the time when you went through the same things yourself. A very interesting piece of work with a few odd quirks that really get you involved in this young boys life and the torment he goes through as he attempts to understand the urges and feelings he is having.

3.0 out of 5 stars not convinced 16 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This seemed more like a whimsical fable than a convincing narrative. I found it difficult to suspend my disbelief while watching, but maybe I misunderstood the nature of the oeuvre.
