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. Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski [Ida (2013)] and starring Joanna Kulig and Tomasz Kot. (c) Amazon Studios
Nominated for 3 Academy Awards — Foreign Language Film, Director, and Cinematography
Cold War is a near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history that’s both deeply personal and politically attuned.

It’s as verbally spare as it is visually spellbinding.

Cinematographer Lukasz Zal finds a chilly, etched beauty in every frame; you’re struck by how snow seems to stroke and soften a harsh landscape, and by the poignancy of wind ruffling the grass in a quiet field.
