“Paweł Pawlikowski’s love letter to his parents is a sweeping tale of passion and politics set in the shadow of the Iron Curtain. Paweł Pawlikowski won the best director award at Cannes in May for this sweepingly intimate love story about a star-crossed couple falling together and apart through the Iron Curtain of postwar Europe. It is inspired by (and dedicated to) his parents, whom Pawlikowski has described as ‘the most interesting dramatic characters I’ve ever come across … both strong, wonderful people, but as a couple a never-ending disaster.‘” (Mark Kermode, Observer)
