A passionate love story between two musicians of different backgrounds and temperaments, who are fatefully mismatched, set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris. In Polish, French, Italian, German and Croatian with English subtitles.

“Cold War was among the most acclaimed films at this year’s Cannes festival, and it’s easy to see why. Pawlikowski has made a masterful anti-romance, shot—like his previous film Ida—in magnificent monochrome and powerfully, even zealously, portraying the dread of a generation that lived through WWII but was never quite able to move past it. This is a remarkable achievement—the most intoxicating, lively and sophisticated feel-bad movie we’re likely to see for some time.” -VIFF “Ida director Pawel Pawlikowski’s exquisitely chilling Soviet-era drama maps the dark heart of Poland itself” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
