24th January 2020
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 fated to be with 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.
Nominated for three Oscars, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Director and Best Cinematography.
Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski who also directed IDA which won an Oscar for the Best Foreign language film.
