Muchachas de uniforme

Feature Film, MX 1951, DCP, 101 min, OmeU

This remake, shot by emigrants in Mexico, is set in a convent where daughters from bourgeois families are raised by nuns. Manuela, an orphan, whose parents came from Europe, is a social outcast and illiterate; bullied by her classmates and oppressed by the teaching methods. Only Miss Lucila, the only secular teacher understands that she needs closeness, trust, and affection. Manuela responds to her with devoted love, which cannot go unpunished in this ultra-Catholic world.
