Cold War tells the passionate love story of Zula (Joanna Kulig) and Wictor (Tomasz Kot), a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. Brought together through music but 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 Academy Award-winner Paweł Pawlikowski (Ida) and “luminously shot in black and white, with every frame artfully composed” (Salon), it’s a sumptuous, emotional whirlwind of a film that will leave you breathless.
