    Pawel Pawlikowski has directed a masterpiece with Ida and for those of you who haven’t seen it in the cinemas, this is one of the must-see films at the festival. A young nun in 1960’s Poland is on the brink of taking her vows when she discovers a troubling family secret at the time of Nazi occupation. It prompts her to take a journey, opening up a new world to her that challenges her strongly-held beliefs and values. Two outstanding performances dominate this film: Agata Trzebuchowska  (‘Anna’) and Agata Kulesza (‘Wanda’). Frame for frame, this is truly great filmmaking.

    The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw gave the film ★★★★★ and said

    it’s “outstanding” and “an eerily beautiful road movie”.

    While the Telegraph’s Tim Robey also gave it ★★★★★ and called it

    “perfect”; “Ida is an immaculate, miraculous masterwork”.

    And the New Yorker called it

    “A film masterpiece”.
