Title: Re: [Zappa-List] Y Tu Mama Tambien
The movie is about how failing to communicate about sex openly has a destructive affect on personal relationships and, by extension, society. Clearly, Frank thought sex should be de-mystified and dealt with openly and directly. I can see where one might suppose that Zappa would have regarded the film as being socially constructive. Of course, that's just my reading of it. I can imagine a valid, contradictory one, too.

Although I thought the film was excellent, I can't help but feel Gail is presuming a great deal. But then she knew him and I didn't.

Must be a good movie then?

I've never seen (or heard of) this film, but here's an interesting snippet

When the producers tried to buy the rights of

Frank Zappa
's "Watermelon in Easter Hay" they were told by Zappa's family that Zappa requested that three of his songs were never played in any media except the album where they appear and that song was one of them.

Gail Zappa
, Frank's widow, saw the movie when editing was almost completed and agreed to make an exception because she considered that Zappa would be proud of the movie.
