Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, two musicians of differing backgrounds and temperaments begin an almost impossible romance. Pawlikowski melds the personal with the political to exquisite effect. Filmed in black-and-white and set to a soundtrack that takes you from the rustic folk songs of rural Poland to the sultry jazz of a Paris basement bar, it’s a journey through a divided continent and an intriguing love story.

“Bittersweet and unbearably lovely, a sad ballad of two lovers who can’t stand to stay apart but also sometimes can’t stand each other either.” – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

“A film made with a verve and lyricism which rekindles memories of the glory days of European New Wave cinema.” – Geofrey Macnab, The Independent
