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.

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.

Hogar is a good genre movie, and it pays for the time we were waiting for the conclusion. [Full Review in Spanish]

[Delpero's] camera is still for what very well might be the entire film, yet she and editors Ilaria Fraioli and Luca Mattei establish a decent sense of place.

The film builds a proper amount of suspense to really hammer through some of the questions that the religion itself raises. [Full Review in Spanish]
