Zimna wojna [Cold War] (2018)

In the 1950s, a music director falls in love with a singer and tries to persuade her to flee communist Poland for France. (IMDb)
A masterpiece in visual storytelling–not a shot nor a line of dialogue feels wasted, and remarkably the film is able to span 10+ years and multiple countries in 90 minutes without feeling rushed or choppy. The characters and the romance plot do lack a bit of substance, but somehow the stunning cinematography and strong, subtle turns from the two leads together are able to convey an intangible sort of depth hidden in the passionate looks of the couple and the probing, poignant eye of the camera.
8.5/10 (Amazing)
