Movie Info

Cold War is a passionate love story between two people of different backgrounds and temperaments, who are fatally mismatched and yet fatefully condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950's in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris--the film depicts an impossible love story in impossible times.

Critic Reviews for Cold War (Zimna wojna)

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (8)

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.

The more we see this relationship, the more its mystery grows. That is the profound, beguiling truth with which Cold War ultimately leaves us.

It deftly walks the line between appropriately somber and great, sophisticated fun.

It's visually stunning, passionate, wistful, and thoughtful in equal measure.
