A critical and audience favourite at this year's Cannes Film Festival (where it was awarded the Best Director prize) and already touted as a major 2019 Oscar contender, Cold War is a ravishing, music-fuelled romance charting two mismatched lovers caught between East and West in 1950s Europe.
In the ruins of post-WWII Poland, pianist Wiktor is commissioned by the Soviet state to form a musical ensemble to help rekindle national pride. Whilst touring the villages in search of talent he meets the beautiful Zula, a fiery and charismatic singer with a past, and the two fall passionately in love. When a performance in Berlin offers the pair an opportunity for escape to the West, a last-minute decision finds them stranded on either side of the Iron Curtain. As years march on, Wiktor and Zula - whether through political circumstance or personal impetuosity - struggle to find their moment in time...
