Cold War (15)
20 October 2018
After the Oscar-winning Ida, Pawel Pawlikowski reunites with cinematographer Łukasz Żal for this exquisite tale of a tumultuous love affair in a divided continent. Fatefully mismatched singer Zula and pianist Wiktor meet at an audition in Poland, and the couple are endlessly drawn to each other across borders over the next 15 years. Sumptuously shot in silvery monochrome, Cold War explores Poland’s dark history to the tune of rustic folk songs and sultry jazz. A moving, dreamlike triumph.
