Cold War (2018, D: Pawlikowski) S: Kulig, Kot





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, itís the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate ó an impossible love story in impossible times. Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski and starring Joanna Kulig and Tomasz Kot.

This has some of the most gorgeous B&W cinematography I've seen in a while. Even more so than Roma, I think. Just intoxicating.

I loved this movie, although I disagree that it's better than Ida. It's an intangible thing but - no pun intended - this one left me a little cold. But it's certainly gorgeous.
