Cinematique Presents: “Cold War”

Mar 19, 2019

Cold War runs from Monday, May 13 thru Thursday, May 16. It screens Monday to Thursday at 7pm with additional matinee screenings on Wednesday and Thursday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Stein Theatre.


Cold War is a passionate love story between a man and a woman who meet in the ruins of post-war Poland. With vastly different backgrounds and temperaments, they are fatefully mismatched and yet condemned to each other. Set against the background of the Cold War in 1950s Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris, it is the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate - an impossible love story in impossible times.



Cold War is a near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history that’s both deeply personal and politically attuned.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

Shot in shimmering black and white in striking 4:3 aspect ratio (as with his last feature, 2013's Oscar-winning Ida), it's visually stunning, passionate, wistful, and thoughtful in equal measure.  Emily Yoshida, Vulture
