Director Pawel Pawlikoski's beautiful, bittersweet "Cold War" is a passionate love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland—and it has earned Oscar nominations for Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Foreign Language Film.
With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, Wiktor and Zula are fatally mismatched but unavoidably drawn to each other. As the tensions and deprivations of the Cold War settle over 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, "Cold War" tells the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate—an impossible love story in impossible times.
"'Cold War' is a near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history that's both deeply personal and politically attuned." —Washington Post
