I have a large amount of respect for the movie and its ambition regardless of its flaws, one of the issues I have with it is the pacing, for only an 82 minutes running time, "Ida" does feel drawn out a bit during a few scenes, I also would of liked more depth to Agata Trzebuchowska's character, and I say that because I think I would of enjoyed the ending much better had she been given more self centred scenes.Speaking of the ending, I thought the idea behind it was a brilliant way to conclude the film, unfortunately I didn't think it was executed to it's fullest measure.
Thus begins a road trip where Ida and Wanda have different goals - Wanda wants to give Ida a chance to experience more of life before taking her vows, while Ida wants nothing more than to find her parents' remains and give them a proper burial.

I had wanted to see Ida for a long time and I was not disappointed.
