Great director cut to next scene choices, leaving tactfully to the imagination, what could be. For example, prior to taking her vows, there is a scene that makes clear in the scene that follows, the tear that fell from her left eye while she waited in the pews while others were taking their vows. There are many other examples also. Killer photography. In one of the near-final scenes, they show Ida staring from what was formerly her aunt's bed. She holds so still for the right amount of time that the viewer is left to pause at an apex in the story. Anna (Agata Trzebuchowska) who likely would have been 20 or 21 during filming, is delicately fascinating.
