"The newest film by Pawel Pawlikowski’s is a terrific, smoky-cool love story, that moves, like a silvery ghost, from the Polish countryside in 1949, to Warsaw and Berlin, to the nightclubs of Paris and then—well, never mind. Cold War—shot, like Pawlikowski’s austere 2013 art-house hit Ida, in lustrous black and white—is set in a bleak era in recent Polish history and is dedicated to the memory of Pawlikowski’s parents. Yet it deftly walks the line between appropriately somber and great, sophisticated fun." - Time
The film competed for the Palme d'Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival where Pawlikowski won the award for Best Director.
