Cold War (15)

Director Paweł Pawlikowski. Drama/Music/Romance


Pawlikowski follows his stunning, Oscar-winning Ida with this epic romance that spans decades and nations to tell a tragic, moving love story. In the ruins of post-war Poland, Wiktor and Zula fall deeply, obsessively and destructively in love. Fatefully mismatched, they are separated by politics, temperament and unfortunate twists of fate - an impossible love story in impossible times. Tiny cogs in the Soviet propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the West. One day in Berlin as they spot their chance, they make a split decision that will mark their lives forever. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, this offers a stunning marriage of haunting imagery and heartfelt emotion while retaining a quiet humour throughout.

Starring Starring: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Atmospheric photography and much enjoyed by the audience.

An amazing film, although some people didn't like how much was left unspoken. Also someone commented that the description in the publicity did not actually match the storyline!

The black/white cinematography perfectly captures the mood and plot of this Polish film, a story of passion and pain. Can not fail to be captivated by the lead character, Zula, and her exquisite singing in the Paris nightclub.
