Movie Info

The Hogar is a paradoxical world in which the precocious maternity of a group of teen moms lives together with the vow of chastity made by the nuns who welcomed them, between rigid rules and Christian love. Sister Paola has just arrived in Buenos Aires from Italy to finish her novitiate and take her final votes at the Hogar, an Italian religious center for teen moms in Buenos. Lu and Fati, both 17, are children abruptly converted into mothers. Three different women who will influence each other's lives and their relationship with motherhood.

  • Delpero shows a sure hand with her performers, especially Malale, a nonprofessional quite evidently drawing on her own experiences in a real-life hogar...

  • A moving, lively study of conflicting duties and desires in a Buenos Aires hogar - a convent-based refuge for young single mothers - that marks an assured shift into narrative filmmaking for Italian docmaker Maura Delpero.

  • Narrated with rigor and austerity, but also with intelligence in their statements and depth in their psychological framework. [Full review in Spanish]

    Nov 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • [Maura] Delpero presents a quiet, studied examination of female relationships and alliances, and though she steers clear of drastic melodrama, it's an effective portrait of survival and resiliency of young women with few options and little agency.
