Pawel Pawlikowski won Best Director at Cannes for his luscious tale of passion and politics set against the stark backdrop of Cold War Europe.

Shot in luminous black and white, Cold War is a wistful and dreamlike journey through a divided continent and a heartbreaking portrait of ill-fated love.

Did You know? Cold War is the first Polish-language movie since 1990 to be shown in the Cannes Film Festival competition. Although there were entries from Polish directors Krzysztof Kieslowski and Roman Polanski during that time, they were made in French and English as co-productions.
