“Pawlikowski remains a director to watch and Cold War is a film to watch again and again.” (Peter Howell, The Toronto Star)
“Passionate, tempestuous, haunting and assured…” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times)
Cold War is a passionate love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, they are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, it’s the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate – an impossible love story in impossible times.
