A critical and audience favorite at last year’s Cannes Film Festival (where it was awarded the Best Director prize) and a major 2019 Oscar contender, Pawel Pawlikowski’s follow-up to the Academy Award-winning IDA is a ravishing music-fueled romance charting two mismatched lovers caught between East and West in 1950s Europe. In the ruins of post-WWII Poland, pianist Wiktor is commissioned by the Soviet state to form a musical ensemble to help rekindle national pride. Whilst touring the villages in search of talent he meets the beautiful Zula, a fiery and charismatic singer with a past, and the two fall passionately in love. When a performance in Berlin offers the pair an opportunity for escape to the West, a last-minute decision finds them stranded on either side of the Iron Curtain. As the years march on, Wiktor and Zula– whether through political circumstance or personal impetuosity–struggle to find their moment in time. Spanning 15 years across Warsaw, Berlin, Paris and Yugoslavia, and inspired by the lives of the director’s own parents, COLD WAR meticulously recreates the era with virtuosic black-and-white cinematography, and an extraordinary soundtrack that is used judiciously to signify the passage of time and shifting relationships. Warmly lyrical, impossibly romantic and visually stunning, COLD WAR is one of the best films of last year.

“Exquisite. Musically glorious and visually ravishing.” – Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN

“Wonderful. Radiantly beautiful.” – Margaret Pomeranz, FOXTEL ARTS SCREEN

“Entirely authentic. Every moment packs a punch.” – David Stratton, THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN

“Thrilling! Seductive! Shot and edited with the rhythm of dance. I loved it.” – Nick James, SIGHT AND SOUND

“A swooning, searing film that unexpectedly put me in mind of CASABLANCA–a reminder of the fundamental things that apply, as time goes by. It left me speechless.” – Mark Kermode, THE OBSERVER

“Dazzling. So assured, so convincing, so involving. It smoulders and burns with the gorgeous, intoxicating atmosphere of star-crossed romance. A compelling portrait of a volatile relationship, an examination of what we do for love and what love won’t do for us. It’s a tale that’s been told before, but this film makes it light up the screen like it’s the very first time.” – Kenneth Turan, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Arresting. Like its two sexy leads–who fall for each other and keep falling–the movie is built for maximum seduction. So beguiling that you would want to linger longer, learn more, see more. This film is filled with ordinary and surprising beauty, with gleaming and richly textured surfaces, and the kind of velvety black chiaroscuro you can get lost in. Its greatest strengths, though, are its two knockout leads, who give the story its heat, its flesh and its heartbreak.” – Manohla Dargis, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“What a treat this is! Moving, humane, rich with period detail and startlingly well-acted. You’re unlikely to see a more beautiful film this year.” – Andrew Lowery, EMPIRE

“Miraculous! One of the films of the year.” – C. J. Johnson, ABC LOCAL RADIO

“A bona fide masterpiece. Pawlikowski is a peerless dramatist with an unerring ability to convey the most revealing character traits with the tiniest of details. The performances are effortlessly empathetic (Kulig is especially strong). The ending is savage, sweet and utterly perfect. A precious discovery, often unutterably beautiful.” – Kevin Maher, THE TIMES

“A dazzling odyssey through the human heart. The most achingly romantic film you’ll see this year.” – Phil de Semlyen, TIME OUT
