Cold War

Drama Romance


 

The passionate love story of a couple who meet in Poland before being separated by fate and the politics of Europe after WW2.

"Cold War" is magnificent on the screen, akin to a black and white work of art. The imagery is rich, the dialogue sparse, and the effect is spellbinding. The relationship between the central couple is too intense to simply be labelled a romance; this is something altogether more transcendent, an enduring affair in a time of destruction and beginnings. The movie has a shorter than usual run time, but the ravishing visual scenes will be long remembered. Red hot lovers.
