We are pleased to announce that the Mystery Movie, on March 26 at 19:45, will be Cold War (Zimna wojna).
This warm and passionate film is directed by Pawel Pawlikowski, who made his name in British television before turning to the stories of his birthplace. Many of you will have enjoyed his Ida, which we showed a couple of years ago: it was that season’s “nun film”.
Cold War is a love story built around folk music and dance, with the political turmoils of post-WWII Europe forming a fascinating backdrop. It is shot in sumptuous monochrome and has been almost universally acclaimed. It is the Polish entry for the Best Foreign Language film nominee in this year’s Oscars.
Tomasz Kot and Joanna Kulig are both tremendous. Here’s a trailer.
