Reactions to Ida

A slightly disappointing score of 85 per cent for Ida, but those who loved it really loved it.

  • “Brilliant: the best film so far this season.”
  • “Amazing: most stunning film I have seen in a long time.”
  • “Spare, beautifully filmed.”
  • “Photographically magnificent, excellent characterisation.”
  • “Brilliant monochrome photography, screen ratio.”
  • “Bleak – lovely music – good representation of Poland at that time.”
  • “Beautifully filmed and tragic.”

On the other hand some people found it a little slow, and there were a few complaints about the film’s melancholic atmosphere. Luckily that did not stop everyone enjoying the wine & cheese after the screening.
