Paweł Pawlikowski follows his Oscar-winning 'Ida' with the stunning 'Cold War', an epic romance set against the backdrop of Europe after World War II. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, it spans decades and nations to tell a love story that is as tragic as it is moving, and as transportive as it is honest.
Pawlikowski melds the personal with the political to exquisite effect. Set to a soundtrack that takes you from the rustic folk songs of rural Poland to the sultry jazz of a Paris basement bar, it’s a wistful and dreamlike journey through a divided continent - and a heartbreaking portrait of ill-fated love.
'..a near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history that is both deeply personal and politically attuned'.Washington Post
'..a glorious throwback – a film made with a verve and lyricism which rekindles memories of the glory days of European New Wave cinema'. Independent
