The film is loosely inspired by Pawlikowski’s parents’ lives. It’s a sad, chilly, sexy and passionate love story between two people, Victor and Zula, of different backgrounds and temperaments. Set in communist-era Poland in the 50s, the story unfolds in Paris, Berlin and Yugoslavia. Exquisitely shot in black and white by cinematographer Łukasz Żal and brilliantly choreographed by Pawlikowski. Zimna Wojna is a masterpiece.

1974 · Directed by Andrzej Wajda
‘Promised Land’ (Ziemia Obiecana) directed by the late Andrzej Wajda, depicts the raw, real, uncivilised reality of capitalism, as if being an emanation of the animal nature of man. The business world in Łódź is so open and natural in its wickedness, that paradoxically, it seems like the world has not come into contact with ethical standards, a world without sin. Only one streak of light illuminates this dark area, the friendship linking a Pole, a Jew and a German. The friendship and solidarity is a challenge to the wolf herd.-Konrad Eberhardt, Kino, 1974
