Academy Award–winning director Paweł Pawlikowski follows up his box-office sensation Ida with this bittersweet, exquisitely crafted tale of an impossible love.
“A terrific, smoky-cool love story … deftly walks the line between appropriately somber and great, sophisticated fun.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine
Set between the late 1940s and early 1960s, Cold War is, as the title implies, a Soviet-era drama, but it stringently and inventively avoids the clichés of many a classical-minded World War II art film, tracking the tempestuous love between pianist (Tomasz Kot) and singer (Joanna Kulig) as they must navigate the realities of living in both Poland and Paris, in and outside of the Iron Curtain. Shot in crisp black-and-white and set to a bewitching jazz score, Pawlikowski’s evocatively detailed film glowingly depicts an uncompromising passion caught up in the gears of history. (Dir. by Pawel Pawlikowski, 2018, Poland/UK/France, in Polish/French/German/Russian/Italian/Croatian with English subtitles, 88 mins., Rated R)
