COLD WAR (M)
THE THAW THAT COUNTS, UK-POLAND, 88MIN
Fans of great international cinema will love this. An achingly moving story commences in Poland in 1949, where a pianist, Wiktor (Tomasz Kot), meets an ambitious singer, Zula (Joanna Kulig). The pair fall hard for each other. A spellbinding use of evocative music and black-and-white cinematography propels a lasting atmosphere.
