Winner of best screenplay at Cannes Film Festival.
Cosmina Stratan (who plays Voichita) and Cristina Flutur (who plays Alina), shared the best actress award at Cannes.
This harrowing, visually stunning new film from director Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), unfolds in and around a remote monastery where Alina arrives to visit her childhood friend Voichita, one of the nuns in training. Alina stays on as she tries to get Voichita to leave her cloistered life, which is when the real trouble begins. Inspired by a case that occurred in Romania’s Moldova region in 2005, Beyond The Hills is about love and free will; about the difficulty of telling good from bad; about indifference; and about options and choices in life deriving from education or from the lack of education.
“ENGROSSING. Explores the push and pull between the collective and the individual, between faith and free will.” – Manohla Dargis, N.Y. Times
“ MAGNIFICENT. Mungiu explores the clash between modernity and medievalism methodically and relentlessly. NOT TO BE MISSED.”
Ben Kenigsberg -Time Out Chicago
“A MASTERPIECE. Builds with unstoppable momentum.” – Stuart Klawens, The Nation
Language: Romanian (English subtitles)
