– The Vermeer-like framing of Anna by Pawel Pawlikowski. Despite the lack of colours, the figure of the main character is shinning and her expressive eyes seem like they escaped from a painting of the great Dutch artist.

– The perpetual issue of faith and how it defines our existence. Anna, as she awaits to be ordained a catholic nun, she learns that she is Jewish and “becomes” Ida.

– The contrast between the innocence and purity of Anna/Ida and the loose ethics of aunt Wanda, delineated not only by their behaviour but by the contrast in their costume colours.

– The thrifty but mellow performance of Agata Trzebuchowska in the role of Anna/Ida.

– The cruel lyricism in the suicide scene. You feel there is something obnoxious in the atmosphere from the beginning.
