In terms of content or plot, this film has little new to offer. Yet it is a small prize.

Unreels with outstanding compassion and tenderness, and authentic detail...

It knows the conventions surrounding the type of tale it is telling, and it steers clear of them...

Guerrero's attitude toward the teenagers - understanding and affectionate, without being cloying - is what holds your interest.

"Mosquita y Mari," an unassuming indie jewel, resists all of the clichés that its story of the fraught friendship between two 15-year-old girls invites.

[It] doesn't aim to make any grand statements. It doesn't need to. The sweetness and sincerity Guerrero and her leads infuse into their intimate coming-of-age story is more than enough.

First-time writer-director Aurora Guerrero beautifully captures the fluctuating dynamics of friendship between 15-year-old girls in Mosquita y Mari.

Most of what transpires between the two girls feels as internal as something you only keep to yourself.

Despite occasional lapses into showy expressionistic slo-mo, Guerrero's direction demonstrates a patience and attention to emotional detail that allows the two young leads' performances to develop naturally.

The film thankfully resists being either a typical coming-out movie or an ethnocultural curio, but it doesn't offer much insight into the twosome's attraction, platonic or otherwise, to each other.
