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.
“Pawel Pawlikowski's Cold War is one of those love-among-the-ruins romances built for maximum seduction.” Manohla Dargis, The NYTimes
“It's a spellbinder with a fever that won’t quit.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“’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.” Ann Hornaday, Washington
