Dodging the wind, Ciwt went to the Polish movie, Ida, (trailer) today. Even though it's been at an indie theater a few blocks from here she wasn't intending to go; somehow the name 'Ida' conjured up a light-hearted or unserious affair. But a friend from 'back home' recommended it. Ciwt hadn't read up on it and went with only vague expectations - all wrong. Ida is a seriously, seriously dark movie but without sentiment or melodrama. Bleak - in many ways hopeless really - but with a true human heart and therefore engaging and watchable. Very well acted, intriguing (artfully memorable) photography, fitting original score - a small masterpiece in Ciwt's opinion.
