Today I would like to write about Ida. This is a movie which almost everyone knows. Ida is a 2013 Polish drama film directed by Paweł Pawlikowski. The film is set in the 60s. Anna before her vows must visit her family. She travels to visit her aunt Wanda and the aunt dispassionately reveals that Anna's actual name is Ida Lebenstein, and that her parents were Jewish and were murdered during World War II. Because of this Anna decides to find their resting place. Anna and her aunt go on a journey and they gain knowledge about the fate of their families. In this movie play Agata Trzebuchowska as Ida Lebenstein, Agata Kulesza as Wanda Gruz and Joanna Kulig, Dawid Ogrodnik, Adam Szyszkowski and Jerzy Trela.
This film has won many awards and August 8, 2014 was a candidate for an Oscar. Ida will compete for the most important world cinematography award for Best Foreign Language Film. This movie received the European Film Award for Best European Film 2014. Ida is also the best film produced by Paweł Pawlikowski. But the opinions about this film are divided and I am curious to know what you think about this film. ;)
