“Paweł Pawlikowski’s love letter to his parents is a sweeping tale of passion and politics set in the shadow of the iron curtain.” Mark Kermode, Observer

A passionate love story, set against the background of the cold war in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris. Masterly composed, brilliantly scored, this drama is about love in times of deprivation, dictatorship and the question ‘How much is one willing to stand up for the life one wants to lead?‘  Best European film 2018

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.” The Washington Post
