COLD WAR “ZIMNA WOJNA”(2018) – POLAND
*Nominated for 3 2019 Academy Awards including Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Cinematography
Director: Pawel Pawlikoski
Writer: Pawel Pawlikoski
Actors: Joanna Kulig, Tomasz Kot, & Borys Szyc
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.
“Pawlikowski is in complete control of the form, but this is no austere piece of work — he even finds time for a few good jokes. Accessible, humane and compassionate: what a treat this is.” – Empire
