Beyond the hills @ Shattuck

Christian Mungiu's (4months, 3 weeks, 2 days) new movie about the friendship between two young women who grew up in the same orphanage; one has found refuge at a convent in Romania and refuses to leave with her friend, who now lives in Germany.

The screenplay, by Mungiu, won a price at Cannes last year.

Some reviews from Metacritic

Possible dinner or coffee afterwards

** Where we meet: I'll be inside the theater, after the ticket taker, until 4:45pm, and in the auditorium afterwards. Look for a Meetup sign.

    An evocatively bleak film filled with small details of everyday life in a desolate and very poor countryside Romanian monastery - less detail would have made a tighter film, but it was interesting nonetheless. When a young woman comes to the monastery to visit a young nun and causes frighteningly troublesome events, there is much more compassion here than you would expect for every character in the film. A very abrupt end to the movie gave this viewer a "huh, what? hmmm..." reaction. On reflection, however, the end seems appropriate.

    An interesting movie which created an intense mood quite well, and which would have gained by a little editing.
