Directed byPawel Pawlikowski

Written byRebecca Lenkiewicz

Year: 2013

Plot: Anna, World War II orphan raised by nuns, is about to take the vows when she learns that she has a living relative, an aunt who’s a lawyer with a dark, stalinist past. The two meet and criss-cross the snow-covered flat expanse of Poland in the sixties.

Pros: One of the most beautifully shot movies we’ve ever seen. Dialogue pruned to bare necessity.

Cons: Much of the sub-texts are lost in the crude translation.
