Mosquita Y Mari Reviews
"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.
admittedly it didn't delve deep enough but the film's likability'd win you over.
was a lil wistful when the film ended.
Mari holds her family's poverty and struggles secret from her best friend and growing romance, which seems to be the only real challenge in the film. But the performances of the title characters carries this narrative.
