Tasteful and extremely well done movie
13 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Mosquita y Mari" is one of the best coming-of-age movies I have seen. The friendship that grows between the two main characters, Mosquita & Mari, feels so pure, so believable... Aurora Guerrero perfectly manages to transmit the audience the feelings the two girls are experiencing... and I also think she did a great job with the mothers of both girls. A mother myself, I see in those two characters pieces of real mothers I know... My favorite portrayal is Mosquita's mother and her unspoken frustration about those truncated dreams of her youth. Very little she says on that matter, but yet we can feel it completely.

The music and the photography in "Mosquita y Mari" are also remarkable. Aurora Guerrero does a fine job portraying the bi-cultural world of the characters. This movie is an exceptional addition to the Latino film scene and it is unquestionably a must-see.
