Film Series: Ida

2013. Poland. Dir: Pawel Pawlikowski. With Agata Trzebuchowska. 106 min.

 

A nun-to-be discovers that she comes from an eradicated Jewish family and sets off with her estranged aunt to uncover the dark secrets of a past left buried after the war. The stark and desolate Polish landscape that pervades throughout wordlessly articulates the quiet dread of two lost souls who have yet to find their way.
