    Ida is a rarity, a film both intensely grounded in painful historical reality and genuinely otherworldly. show more

    Pawel Pawlikowski's Ida, a compact masterpiece set in Poland in the early 1960s, gets to the heart of its matter with startling swiftness. show more

    an excellent movie that makes you think about it long after it's over. reminds of the Decalogue of Kieslowski. The Polish cinema did it again! not a light movie though. excellent actors. five stars

    It was a great movie. It ended to soon and abruptly, but powerfully. I have to see it again to fully digest the message and story.

    I just don't get where the reviewers feel this is a masterpiece of beauty and cinema excellent. They must be the same folk who think swimming in Lake Michigan in mid-winter is refreshing! This movie is dark beyond dark and depressing. After leaving the theater, get the vodka out as you'll need it.
