In post-WWII Poland, Wiktor and Zula fall obsessively and destructively in love. As musicians forced to play into the Soviet propaganda machine, they dream of escaping to the freedom of the West. When a chance to leave for Paris arises, both make a split decision that will mark their lives forever.
Peering behind the iron curtain of 1950s Poland, Paweł Pawlikowski’s melancholic, jazzy period piece ruminates on the possibility of borderless love in an ideologically polarized world. An exquisitely shot, black-and-white gem nominated for 3 Academy Awards® including Best Director.
