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.

      Monastery life, incredible that takes place now, poverty, sleeping with gloves, it's so cold! Sometimes mental illness changed subjects and it was the nuns and priest who were the sick ones and the girl the sane one. They tried to help her through a symbolic crucifixion. I agree on the compassion, about the end, I wonder...

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