EXPAT CINEMA: COLD WAR
We continue with our series of Expat Cinema – where we offer the best foreign movies with English subtitles. Director Pawel Pawlikowski follows up his stunning drama Ida with another sweeping tale of passion and politics set in the shadow of the iron curtain.
Cold War is a passionate love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, they are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, it’s the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate — an impossible love story in impossible times.
