The film is a true and accurate representation of real life in poverty of Colombia's lower-income class. The reality of females' lack of opportunity and their only way of survival: manual labor of homemaker. At the general landscape, the movie shows the heart of Colombia's cultural layout with its music, dance, and love. Maria is an average teen whose age will allow her to adapt to her new life in The U.S. It shows that been a mule for one time does not render her unfit for our society. It was just the only price she could pay to see her baby grow up in a more perfect society. Her performance is remarkable. Especially when we see her determination to remain in the U.S, when walking toward her new chosen future, she gradually transforms from the humble and unsophisticated Latin-American walk to a more Americanized-walking demeanor. Shaking her smooth black hair away from her face remained us of those sophisticated models that show us the latest in fashion. I will recommend the film and love to own a DVD to share it in Cuba when I visit my family next year.

A reviewer, A reviewer, February 19, 2005 wrote a desperate attempt to downplay a movie that requires an open mind to review. “María, llena eres de gracia” is probably -after "Like water for chocolate"- one of the most accomplished Hispanic productions of modern film art. The length of time where the camera stood on faces seeks to show the viewer that women have a personality and that they are not a mere sex object. You suppose to read her facial expressions, her soul, sufferings, sorrows and social agonies. It takes an analytical mind to see that. I’ll bet any thing that you won’t enjoy “Once upon the Time in the West.” We’re accustomed to our American productions where Julia Roberts plays the sexiest and the hero is always a guy, Segal fights several guys without even a sweat, Clint takes over the French headquarters in Mexico assisted by his second in line Sarah the hooker/nun or even Rusell to bring the president out of New York. Well, those are fictions “Mary full of Grace” is a film about reality, about real people. If you cannot see the beauty in that, I'll agree that you’ve just wasted two hours out of your precious lifetime. Then I have to say: movies about real people are not for you.

I really don't have much to add to what has already been said about this film, other than it is the most harrowing, uncompromising yet painfully quiet drama on the Colombian drug trade I've ever seen. This is an extraordinarily powerful work of art. It should make those of us who are not poor and desperate thankful that we do not face the horrific choices that confront Maria and her fellow 'mules.' Highly recommended!

I absolutely love foreign and independent because most of the movies out there such as Duplex and Me Myself and Irene are garbage movies. I want a movie to make me think and feel to walk away in awe. This is one of those films. You simply seem the struggles these women and the financial struggles the country was going through, it makes you not want to complain 'how bad American is'.
