Mungiu’s latest film might be selected for the Cannes Festival

The latest film directed by Cristian Mungiu, ‘Beyond the Hill,’ is among the movies expected to be chosen for this year’s edition of the Cannes Film Festival, scheduled to take place between May 16-27, variety.com reports. According to the source, two films directed by Palme d’Or laureates – the romance ‘Like Someone in Love’ by Abbas Kiarostami from Iran, and the drama ‘Beyond the Hills’ by Romanian director Cristian Mungiu – might be included in the 20 films that will line up for the festival. Cristian Mungiu is the scenarist and director of ‘Beyond the Hills,’ listed in the contest of cinema projects organised by the National Center of Cinematography last September, under the title ‘Provisional.’ The film is a co-production between the film studio of the Romanian director – Mobra Films – the French studio ‘Why Not Productions’ and the Belgium-based studio ‘Les Films du Fleuve,’ controlled by the brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. Cristian Mungiu won the Palme d’Or in 2007 with ‘4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.’
