At Cine Expat we screen foreign language films with English subtitles. On February 7th we screen Cold War. It is a compelling love story from director and screenwriter Pawel Pawlikowski (The Oscar winner from the movie Ida).
Musician Wiktor has a quest to set up an ensemble that performs Polish folklore. When doing so his eye falls on the young and free-spirited Zula. It is love at first sight and they experience a passionate romance, but are separated by politics and setbacks. Set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, the film depicts an impossible love story in impossible times.
