Cold War

Oscar winner Pawel Pawlikowski tells a tragic love story against the background of the Cold War, to the beat of jazz and Polish folk songs.
In 1949, the composer Viktor (Tomasz Kot) travels through the remote mountain villages of Poland. There he is looking for traditional songs, peasant and folk songs that his dance and music ensemble wants to perform and preserve. On his journey Wiktor meets the talented, sexy, rebellious Zula (Joanna Kulig). Soon she will be the focus of the ensemble. Victor is intoxicated by Zula. They become a secret lovers.
As the state power increasingly influences the music of the ensemble, Wiktor sees no artistic perspective in Poland. He uses a tour to East Berlin to flee to the West. Also Zula should come along. But she does not appear to the appointment. Only years later, Wiktor has in the meantime made his way as a jazz pianist and film musician, they meet again in Paris on the way. But her love is too big to find peace with each other.
The Oscar winner PaweĊ‚ Pawlikowski (“Ida”) tells the story of an equally formally and sensually staged Amour fou playing against the background of the Cold War. Filmed in stylish black and white with an aspect ratio taken from TV productions, the tragic love story takes place in tune with Polish folk songs and jazz improvisations. “Cold War – The Latitude of Love” with Tomasz Kot (“The Spur”) and above all a charming Joanna Kulig (also “Ida”) is cast in the main roles – a feast for cineastes.
Pawlikowski won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2015 with the drama “Ida”. “Cold War – The Latitude of Love” is now following in the footsteps of the masterpiece. At the Cannes Film Festival in 2018 Pawlikowski received the award for Best Director for the love story. And also at the Academy Awards 2019, the melancholy drama is there. “Cold War – The Latitude of Love” has received three nominations for Best Director, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Camera.
