“Cold War”: Culture Maven on Film

Posted: February 8th, 2019 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | 1 Comment »

How enchanting that a resonant tale can be told in 89 minutes, in black & white on a screen with old school squarish aspect ratio.

But it is so with the import from Poland, “Cold War.”

It is a movie which crisply and uniquely tales the tale of love and the politics and culture of the time and place.

We never quite learn the whys and wherefores of Zula.

Or of her lover Wiktor.

Or, even the how did they come to fall in love.

But that mystery is all part of the fascination with this unique cinematic adventure.
