"Cold War" captivates and transcends barriers of language and culture. It's a gorgeous tale as rocky as it is romantic.

Heart-thumping: the passion on display is of all sorts, a steady flame against the cold.

What struck home the most forcefully for me in "Cold War" is its depiction, insidious and unrelenting, of how artists under communism suffered for their art. At its best, the film is like a bulletin from a benighted world.

Pawlikowski remains a director to watch and Cold War is a film to watch again and again.

Pawlikowski somehow manages to whip through this decade-and-a-half-long tale in a mere 88 minutes, this all killer, no filler love story at turns reaching right into your heart for squeezes both gentle and much more crushing.
