Cristian Mungiu is a very talented Romanian filmmaker who always offers a silent depth of shock to his stories. His latest entry is Beyond the Hills // După Dealuri, a narrative encompassing intersections between religion, loyalty, love, and their impending social train wreck. Official synopsis as follows (via Cannes 2012):
“Alina returns to Romania from Germany, hoping to bring Voichita – the only person in the world she loves and was loved by – back to her. But Voichita has found God – and God is the hardest lover of all to be jealous of.”
