Cold War

Cold War (15)

A passionate love story between a couple who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, they are fatefully mismatched and yet drawn to each other again and again and again. Set against the background of the Cold War in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, it’s the tale of two people separated by the world around them, the flaws within them and unfortunate twists of fate – an impossible love story in impossible times.

Stunningly beautiful with a haunting sound track that spans Polish folk music to smokey jazz, it’s no wonder that Cold War featured on many of the ‘Best Films’ lists of 2018. It’s one of those films that lingers in the mind long after the credits have rolled so don’t miss the chance to one of the best films of recent times.

And the critics say…

“Paweł Pawlikowski’s love letter to his parents is a sweeping tale of passion and politics set in the shadow of the iron curtain .” Mark Kermode, Observer

“It’s Pawlikowski second-straight masterwork, only one with a critical if seldom-seen error. His movie is too short.” Jake Coyle, Associated Press

“Its greatest strengths, though, are its two knockout leads, who give the story its heat, its flesh and its heartbreak.” Manohla Dargis, New York Times

“Pawel Pawlikowski’s savagely sexy spellbinder burns with a fever that won’t quit. Joanna Kulig is a shining new star who rips across the screen like a comet. Forget the frosty title, there’s enough sizzling carnality here to the singe the screen..” Peter Travers,  Rolling Stone
