Film of the Week: “Cold War” (Zimna wojna) by Pawel Pawlikowski

An epic romance set against the backdrop of Europe after World War II.

In the ruins of post-war Poland, Wiktor and Zula fall deeply, obsessively and destructively in love. As performing musicians forced to play into the communist propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the creative freedom of the West. One day, they spot their chance to make a break for freedom in France, yet fall out with each other and make a decision that will mark their lives forever.

Paweł Pawlikowski follows his Oscar-winning Ida with this stunning film. Shot in luminous black and white, it’s a wistful and dreamlike journey through a divided continent – and a heartbreaking portrait of ill-fated love.
