Final Week!

A passionate love story between two people of different backgrounds and temperaments, who are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, the film depicts an impossible love story in impossible times.

Poland | France | UK, 2018, 88 minutes, Rated R, In Polish, French, German, Russian, Italian, & Croatian with English subtitles, Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski

  • “Luminously shot in black and white, with every frame artfully composed, Pawel Pawlikowski's powerful 'Cold War'....casts a spell over audiences.”

    – Gary M. Kramer, SALON.COM
  • “It's visually stunning, passionate, wistful, and thoughtful in equal measure.”

  • “It deftly walks the line between appropriately somber and great, sophisticated fun.”

    – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME MAGAZINE
  • “’Cold War’ rivals most films I can think of in how much longing it packs into every scene... It's a work of unspeakable beauty.”

    – Alissa Wilkinson, VOX
  • “The exquisitely-told tale of a decades-long love affair that defies boundaries of class and age, as well as post-war tensions between East and West.”

    – Brian Viner, DAILY MAIL (UK)
  • “This is a remarkable achievement - sumptuous, ambitious, intelligent and with a knockout soundtrack.”

    – Edward Lawrenson, THE BIG ISSUE
  • “Unexpectedly put me in mind of ‘Casablanca’ or ‘La La Land’ as reimagined by Andrzej Wajda or Agnieszka Holland - a reminder of the fundamental things that apply, as time goes by.”

    – Mark Kermode, OBSERVER (UK)
