Review: 'Ida' 9.15.14

“Ida” is yet another great example of the crop of European films that explore existential ideas during times of war that are shown through the eyes of young women. 559 more words

I had put off watching this film for a while assuming it was no different from the war-dramas I had  watched lately; it sat in my list for a few weeks before I decided to watch it (normally, I tend to make up my mind about watching a film by reading the synopsis and avoiding reviews which is why I didn’t realise I had accidentally stumbled upon a really great film). 325 more words
