COLD WAR opens in rural Poland in 1949, where pianist Wiktor is auditioning local folk singers. When he encounters the beautiful Zula, a spark is ignited which blossoms into a love story spanning two decades, several countries and some of the tensest moments of the Cold War. Pawel Pawlikowski’s follow-up to the Oscar-winning IDA is another haunting period drama shot in stunning black and white. The result is not only the most unforgettable love story you will see this year but a strong contender for the most visually beautiful film of 2018.
NB! COLD WAR will be screened with Norwegian subtitles.
