A passionate love story between two people of different backgrounds and temperaments who are fatefully mismatched, set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s in Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia and Paris. This is an achingly personal story – the romantic leads are named after Pawlikowski’s own parents, to whom the film is dedicated – and also a sadly resigned one.
