Beyond the Hills, adapted from a real event in Europe in 2005, is another masterpiece of Cristian Mungiu other than 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days. It is a story of two young women who grew up together in an orphanage, Alina and Voichita. Alina has come back to Romania from Germany and wants Voichita to return with her. However, Voichita is reluctant to leave the monastery where she lives with a dozen other women and a lone priest, believing she’s found a cure for crippling loneliness, God. Alina’s insistence on a romantic reunion draws herself into an unbearable consequence that she is seen as being possessed by demons and thus tortured by a series of inhumane exorcism till death.
