This film was last shown on 28 March 2013

A drama centred on the friendship between two young women who grew up in the same orphanage; one finds refuge at a convent in Romania, the other moves to Germany. Alina returns to Romania, hoping to bring Voichita - the only person in the world she loves and was loved by - back with her. But Voichita has found God - and God is the hardest lover of all to be jealous of.

The brilliant new film by the director of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days tells the true
story of a tragedy that unfolded in a small religious community in Romania.


"A cerebral melodrama of the most steely, bare and brutal kind."

4/5 - Dave Calhoun, Time Out

"Enthralling, mysterious and intimately upsetting - a terrible demonstration of how poverty creates a space which irrational fear must fill."

4/5 - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
