Ida is a Polish film about an orphan on the verge of becoming a nun, when she discovers a dark secret about her past. This film was so beautiful--the silliness and use of silence was incredible. It almost didn't feel like a foreign film because there was so little dialogue. Every shot felt like it was individually crafted and the choice of black and white was excellent.
This band is pretty specular-- think they are a great balance between "thinking music" and just being really tender and calming. I guess they make me feel a whole lot of different ways. I am a big fan of this acoustic version of Trying to Sleep (see above) and their song Australia.
