Beyond the Hills is mostly set in a rural Romanian convent. It progresses very slowly and has lots of empty time—nuns praying, nuns getting water from the well. At the center of the story are two young women. One, Alina, is a rebel and mentally unstable; the other, Voichita, is thoughtful, caring, and sympathetic. (Are they friends or lovers? No one can tell.) The priest hates Alina and tries to force her out of the convent, but Alina returns and continues to make life miserable for him. Beyond the Hills completely rewards you for its slow time. (CHARLES MUDEDE)
