Based on a true story, this harrowing tale from Romanian New Wave stalwart Cristian Mungiu ("4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days") provides a haunting minimalist portrait of the point at which personal freedom and religious dogma collide. Alina (Cristina Flutur) visits her lifelong friend Voichita (Cosmina Stratan) at the remote monastery where she worships under the watchful eye of a priest known as Papa (Valeriu Andriuta). Alina wants to take her friend away from this cloistered existence, but Voichita's second thoughts lead to dire consequences. Flutur and Stratan shared the Best Actress prize at Cannes for their remarkable naturalistic performances.
