Cold War ★★★★★

This film pulls no punches. Not in love and certainly not in cruelty. And as a choir kid who grew up on jazz, this is yet another perfect score in a Pawlikowski film (and he remains one of my favorite directors). It brings back fond memories I’ve never lived through. It takes you everywhere through time, and you feel the political constraints and societal shifts in every new setting. You see the way it affects their love, anger, and frustration. But never their passion. All of which breathes so much life into the very last line of the film. So yeah, I’m in love with this.
