Cold War US Trailer

"Pawlikowski is a peerless dramatist." Amazon Studios has debuted another trailer for the award-winning Polish film Cold War (or Zimna Wojna), which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year. The film is expected to get a Best Foreign Language Film nomination at the Oscars, and possibly win as well. Cold War is the latest from acclaimed Polish filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski (of The Woman in the Fifth, Ida) and he also won Best Director in Cannes. It's about a passionate love story between two people, who are fatefully mismatched. Wiktor, played by Tomasz Kot, falls for Zula, played by Joanna Kulig, and they spend years drifting together and apart. Set in Europe against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s. The cast includes Borys Szyc, Agata Kulesza, C├Ędric Kahn, and Jeanne Balibar. It also has gorgeous B&W cinematography by DP Lukasz Zal. The film is already out in theaters - certainly worthy of your time.

Here's the second official US trailer for Pawel Pawlikowski's Cold War, direct from Amazon's YouTube:
