The Polish drama Cold War has been making waves at film festivals so far this year. The film is actually loosely inspired by the lives of director Paweł Pawlikowski who co-wrote the film with Janusz Głowacki which could explain the depth of the film’s current critical attention. The synopsis is as follows:
A passionate love story between two people of different backgrounds and temperaments, who are fatefully mismatched, set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950’s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris.
No release date has been given yet for the film anywhere yet. It did get released in Poland on June 8th of course given the director’s origins, but I imagine the film will be released here soon enough if it’s as acclaimed as it’s being promoted as. For now, check out the new trailer for the film below:
