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’s the tale of a couple separated by politics, character flaws and unfortunate twists of fate — an impossible love story in impossible times.
(Academy Award nominations for: Best Foreign Language Film, Best Director, Best Cinematography)
From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski (Last Resort, My Summer of Love) comes Ida, a poignant and powerfully told drama about 18-year-old Anna, a sheltered orphan raised in a convent, who is preparing to become a nun when she discovers that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation.
This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into the countryside, to the family house and into the secrets of the repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism.
Powerfully written and eloquently shot, Ida is a masterly evocation of a time, a dilemma, and a defining historical moment.
(2015 Oscar winner for: Best Foreign Language Film. Also nominated for Best Cinematography)
Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski helms this Paris-set psychological thriller adapted from the 2007 book by Douglas Kennedy. American novelist Tom Ricks (Ethan Hawke) arrives in Paris in the vain hope of staging a reconciliation with his estranged ex-wife and daughter. When his plan fails, Tom hits rock bottom, renting a room in a seedy motel, taking a job as a gangster's accomplice and embarking on an affair with mysterious literary translator Margit Kadara (Kristin Scott Thomas).
Pawel Pawlikowski directs this award-winning Polish drama set in a convent in the 1960s. When Anna (Agata Trzebuchowska), an orphan who was brought up by the nuns of the convent, decides she wants to take her vows, she is told that first she must visit her only living relative, Wanda (Agata Kulesza). As Wanda reveals to Anna that her real name is Ida Lebenstein and that she is actually Jewish, Anna starts to rethink her whole life. As the two go on a journey to find out more about their ancestors they reveal certain facts that were best left hidden. The film won a BAFTA for Best Film Not in the English Language and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
