“Ida”, the revolutionary human soul

Ida” ends with a violent shot. The camera is hand-held for the first time. It shakes with each of Ida’s steps.

She walks down a long road back to the convent. The black road indifferent to the greyed countryside it snakes through. She’s been here before but this time it’s different.

Ida now sees that all things are relative, not absolute. So why does she return to the church?

She’s coming back to fuck up the establishment.

She left almost a nun. She returns a revolutionary.

The fully-formed human soul.
