  • Reception

    The movie has received mixed to bad critics. On IMDb has received an average rating of 5.3, with similar ratings on other rating movie databases such as Letterboxed and TMDB. The critics questioned mostly the participation of adult women as the main characters, playing as secondary school girls, instead of casting true teenage actress (a common practice in Mexican TV shows), and the frequent and unnecessary allusions to old Mexican soap operas and some connotations not according to the age the main characters supposedly have. At some point in the movie the girls mention their favorite singer is an old ballad Mexican singer, instead of any pop star of their age, and their favorite TV shows are the kind middle age or senior adults watch, as if the screenwriter had no clue of the likes of an actual teenager. The girls also seem to be very familiar with real life events that happened 20-30 years ago, before they even were born. The presence of an adult version of Frida talking about her past may indicate the complete story is actually a memory, which may explain those time issues, but the furniture, cars, clothes and other media present in the movie indicates it is happening in actual times. The movie has also been criticized for being written from a misogynous perspective, which frequently remarks "that all girls just want to do it", and it is not easy to say what the real subject of the movie is, since there are so many: the discovery of sexuality, discrimination, chance, drugs, maternity, traditions, betrayals, power, love. A mural of a complex reality from the point of view of twenty-something women in the skin of 14 to 17 year old girls.
