Ida (2013)

Poland 82m, B&W
Director: Paweł Pawlikowski; Cast: Agata Kulesza, Agata Trzebuchowska, Dawid Ogrodnik

idaIda is a somber drama about Anna, a young Polish woman who has spent her life living in a convent and believing that she was an orphan. About to take her vows as a nun, she is informed that she has a living relative, a Jewish aunt who had been a member of the Communist Resistance during WWII. Together they search for the graves of their dead relatives, and Anna rethinks her decision to serve God. Ida is a beautifully austere film that captures a cold war look and feel. As Anna, Trzebuchowska is mesmerizing as the young nun in this tragic story of her family (Klaus Ming February 2015).
