Cold War (15)

Pawel Pawlikowski | 2018 | Poland | France | UK | 88’

From Ida Director Paweł Pawlikowski comes this epic, episodic, cold war love story. Set in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris in the late 1940s and 1950s, the story circles around a romance between pianist and composer Wiktor and singer Zula, who become part of a presentation of traditional Polish song and dance to be used to show off to party officials, Russia and the West. Musically and visually magnificent, the musical ensemble performances are particularly staggering.
