Not terrific but not awful.
28 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Maricela" is the story about a girl named Maricela from El Salvador who came to America during the war. She and her mother then become maids for a rich family. I was forced to watch this film in my Spanish class. It wasn't the best movie I have watched in any class, but it wasn't the worst.



Warnings: Thematic elements, some violent images and brief language.

My Critique: 4.5/10
