Thinking about Ida - Pawel Pawlikowski

March 29, 2015

Pawel Pawlikowski’s film is in black and white.

Why?

Light.

Concentration/focus

Tone

Mood

Shadow

No distractions

Form and shape and composition

Purity

Withholding

Sensuality

Things of the world and the body versus things of the spirit

Line

Texture

Puritanical view

Failings of the things of desire – the man who killed the girl’s parents so that he should possess what they had/ his destruction of himself and his father; the aunt’s destruction by her desires for things of the world

The damage done that can’t be undone

The girl’s sacrificing of herself (but does she really want anything else? She shows no evidence of desire for the young man; only curiosity)

Is this a truthful film?

Yes. But not everyone’s truth. It’s one sided
