Trivia Cold War

'Cold War' received standing ovation of 18 minutes at Cannes Film Festival. The first Polish-language movie since 1990 to be shown in the Cannes Film Festival competition. Although there were entries from Polish directors Krzysztof Kieslowski and Roman Polanski during that time, they were made in French and English as co-productions. The turbulent relationship between the main characters was inspired by the director's real-life parents, who did break up and get together a couple of times as well as moved from one country to another.
