Mosquita Y Mari Reviews

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

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.

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.

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.
