From hot newcomers Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi comes this gloriously camp musical comedy based on their own cult play LA LLAMADA. An uplifting story about finding love in all shapes featuring classic hits by Whitney Houston together with delightfully catchy new songs.
Maria and Susana are two rebellious teens who spend their summer in a camp run by nuns. They live there with Mother Superior Bernarda, an older nun looking to modernize, and Sister Milagros, a young nun who’s filled with doubt. With music as their common denominator, teen rebellion and ecclesiastic order collide, creating a hymn to freedom and first love.
“The movie holds up thanks to its sharp dialogue, the eclectic music selection and a quartet of outstanding actresses”. Alberto Luchini – El Mundo.
“Funny, luminous, risky and surprising (…) the entire framework of ‘Holy Camp!’ is sensational and fun (…) but inside, it’s carrying dynamite”. Oti Rodríguez – ABC
“This musical comedy’s ability to exude joy and fun in undeniable (…) the comic side of all the actresses is key”. Oskar Belategui – El Correo.
“An initiation tale, a pamphlet that touts living life your own way and a musical comedy with dramatic outbursts, the story is a unique interpretation of religion in times of disbelief”. Pere Vall – Fotogramas.
