In 1960s Poland, Anna, a novitiate num about to take her vows, is instructed to meet her aunt, Wanda, prior to withdrawing  into religious life.  This launches a remarkable journey into the countryside, where the women’s search for details about their family’s past illuminates some of the darkest corners of Poland’s history under both fascist occupation and communist autocracy.  Elegantly shot in black and white, brilliantly structured, and impeccably executed, IDA is one the year’s most powerful and affecting films.

Godfrey Chesire, “Riveting, original and breathtakingly accomplished on every level, “Ida” would be a masterpiece in any era, in any country.”
