Watch a New Clip from Crisitian Mungiu’s ‘Beyond the Hills’

If you’ve been waiting with baited breath to see Crisitian Mungiu’s Beyond the Hills, prepare yourself because the film opens this Friday at IFC and you’re sure to be mesmerized by the Romanian filmmaker’s work. After winning the award for Best Screenplay and a shared award for Best Actress last year at Cannes, it was selected as the Romanian entry for the Academy Awards and is more than worth its merit.

Starring the haunting and talented duo of Cristina Flutur and Cosmina Stratan, Beyond the Hills follows two young women at an Orthodox convent in Romania. The film tells the story of the friendship between the women, who grew up together at the same orphanage—one finding a home in a convent and the other who lives in Germany. We enter the film as they reunite at the convent and from there, it plays out in its simmering silent fashion, veering off in unexpected directions. The Playlist has posted an exclusive clip from the work that explores love, relgion, faith, and possession. Watch below.
