Cold War (Zimna wojna)In an exciting love story between two probably very different and probably not identical. They both live a love story at a time that seems strange and exciting, a time of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Paris and Berlin. It looks like an eternal love story and seems impossible at times and perhaps in circumstances that seem very difficult.

Critic Reviews of "Cold War (Zimna wojna)"Salon.comSeptember 16, 2018
Luminously shot in black and white, with every frame artfully composed, Pawel Pawlikowski's powerful "Cold War"....casts a spell over audiences.Wall Street JournalSeptember 07, 2018
A passionate love story (yes, there's a recurrent theme here) that plays out, with musical accompaniment and political resonance, across three decades in postwar Europe.Globe and MailSeptember 05, 2018
Form and content seem oddly divorced, but music -- the Polish folk tunes, communist-propaganda anthems and Parisian torch songs -- sets the mood and saves the day.Time OutAugust 28, 2018
One of the most colourful things you'll ever see in black and white.Los Angeles TimesMay 15, 2018
This is an achingly personal story - the romantic leads are named after Pawlikowski's own parents, to whom the film is dedicated - and also a sadly resigned one.Village VoiceMay 14, 2018
The more we see this relationship, the more its mystery grows. That is the profound, beguiling truth with which Cold War ultimately leaves us.ClarínNovember 02, 2018
Pawlikowski continues to be a master of frame composition. [Full Review in Spanish]CineuropaOctober 31, 2018
It's got more energy and freedom than the more classically told Ida, and this can be seen in the camera movements, although occasionally it feels like the movie meanders as much as the characters do.Patrick NabarroOctober 30, 2018
Pawlikowski is compelling his two lovers on a sadistic and slightly contrived trajectory to end-gain the moral of the story which is that corrosive politics destroy lives.Otroscines.comOctober 30, 2018
In Cold War, every frame contains a moving beauty and intensity. [Full Review in Spanish]EscribiendoCineOctober 30, 2018
Pawel Pawlikowski puts on stage what is impossible to represent: the space for love in a world divided in two, in this masterful work, powerful and reflective, about passions denied by the historical context. [Full Review in Spanish]The Filtered LensOctober 27, 2018
It's sort of Richard Linklater's Before trilogy meets Casablanca, but condensed into an all-too-short 85-minute runtime.
