COLD WAR

Pawel Pawlikowski · Poland · 2018 · 88 mins · 14A
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

NOMINATED FOR 3 ACADEMY AWARDS:

BEST FOREIGN FILM, DIRECTOR, & CINEMATOGRAPHY!

Ironically enough, “Cold War” tells the story of a passionate romance. Beginning in post-World War II Poland and crisscrossing the Iron Curtain over several decades and many hairpin curves of the heart, the movie floats the heresy that all love is political. Directed and co-written by Pawel Pawlikowski (“Ida”), it’s partly a eulogy for the filmmaker’s parents but mostly a great love story that seems to flourish in repression and falter when liberated. Shot in lucid, all-seeing black and white, “Cold War” is about the gray areas of the human heart. It’s 1949 when Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) and Zula (Joanna Kulig) meet: He is a talented pianist and conductor pressed into service as a musicologist by the new Communist government, and she is a teenage singer auditioning for a state-sponsored folklore troupe.

“Cold War” is a ravishment, a cinematic feast for the senses, and it packs an epic inner landscape into a dense 88 minutes.…A simple filmic jewel of a story, about a couple swimming hard against the currents of history and governments until they only have each other to cling to. --Boston Globe
“Pawlikowski remains a director to watch and ‘Cold War’ is a film to watch again and again.” Toronto Star
“A near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history that's both deeply personal and politically attuned.”  Washington Post
Cast Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, Borys Szyc
