A tumultuous love story between two very different people, who despite their overwhelming passion for each other, are fatefully mismatched. Winner of Best Director at Cannes in May and has received ecstatic reviews.
Pawel Pawlikowski, director of the Oscar-winning ‘Ida’, returns with a story set against the oppressive background of the Cold War; following singer Zula (Joanna Kulig) and pianist Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) over the course of 15 years. Endlessly drawn to each other, they are unable to co-exist, but their inability to move on from one another is stuck on a painful loop. The film’s very structure serves to compound and solidify their unbreakable bond as Zula rises to fame, as they perform across Eastern Europe (the film includes some brilliantly choreographed musical set-pieces) and realise that they must find a way to slip past the Iron Curtain, and soon.
