Synopsis

When 18-year-old noviate Anna learns her true identity as a Polish Jew named Ida, the revelation triggers a journey into the countryside, to the family house and into the secrets of the repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism.

Our take

For his first film made in his native Poland, writer-director Paweł Pawlikowski (Cold War) crafted the character study Ida: a personal and pensive historical drama, carefully composed and exquisitely rendered in black-and-white. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Feature.
