All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (2)

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

    June 18, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Guerrero's attitude toward the teenagers - understanding and affectionate, without being cloying - is what holds your interest.

    August 3, 2012 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Mosquita y Mari," an unassuming indie jewel, resists all of the clichs that its story of the fraught friendship between two 15-year-old girls invites.

    August 2, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • [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.

    August 2, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Mosquita Y Mari

  • Feb 06, 2015
    In "Mosquita y Mari," Yolanda(Fenessa Pineda), a daughter of immigrants, is a straight A student in high school. That does not mean she always plays by the rules, however, as she covers for her new neighbor and fellow student, Mari(Venecia Troncoso), when she shoplifts at a local bodega. Mari returns the favor when Yolanda is almost caught smoking in the girls' room. After which, Yolanda agrees to help her new friend in math class. "Mosquita y Mari" covers certain themes well like female friendships and the American dream for the children of immigrants in bilingual households. The downside is that Yolanda is sometimes under too much pressure to succeed, proving how hard it is to be perfect all the time. At the same time, the plot and story are so insubstantial that the movie threatens to float away at the first breeze.
