Cold War

Film Description

Cold War is a passionate love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland.

Set against the background of the Cold War in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, it’s the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate – an impossible love story in impossible times.
