Pozdrawiamy, Zespół Festiwalu Filmowego w Bedford.

The first film to be shot in his native Poland, Pawlikowski’s ‘Ida’ is evocative of Bresson in its formal exactness and penetrating rendering of human emotion.

Anna, an orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to take her vows when she’s sent to visit Wanda, her aunt and only living relative. Wanda reveals that Anna’s real name is Ida and that her parents were Jews murdered during the Nazi occupation. So the two embark on an unusual journey through the wintry countryside to unearth their family’s dark history.

Pawlikowski has thrilled audiences before with his documentary work and his features Last Resort and My Summer of Love but this may just be his greatest achievement yet. Set in a sombre 1960s Poland with its atmosphere of Catholicism, Communism and lingering memories of the Holocaust it’s a vibrant, intimate and subtle portrait of two contrasting women and a deeply humanist work full of thematic and formal grace and composure.

The black and white cinematography by Łukasz Żal, Ryszard Lenczewski is a thing of rare beauty. The performances are also truly exceptional.
