Shooting in black and white, and using the 1.37:1 Academy frame - the almost-square frame of classic cinema - Pawlikowski sets his film in sixties Poland. Anna is a novice, an orphan brought up in a convent. Before taking her vows, she is determined to meet Wanda, her only living relative. Wanda tells the girl that she is Jewish. They both set off on a journey to discover the tragic history of their family, as well as to understand who they really are.

This film is impeccably executed and judged, achingly written, finely structured and eloquently shot. Scene after scene is a masterly evocation of a time, a dilemma, and a defining historical moment; yet Ida is also personal, intimate, and human. The weight of history is everywhere, but the scale falls within the scope of a young woman learning about the secrets of her own past. This intersection of the personal with momentous historic events is gauged to perfection in a film that will have everyone reaching for superlatives. (Piers Handling, Toronto International Film Festival)
