Two star-crossed lovers play out an epic romance in Pawel Pawlikowski’s entrancing, Oscar-nominated film. Following the end of World War II, Wiktor (Tomasz Kot) has been tasked by party apparatchiks to record the country’s traditional folk music and dance for a propagandistic, moraleboosting statement of national pride.
He becomes captivated by the talented young singer/dancer Zula (Joanna Kulig), who is the star attraction of what will eventually become the real-life Mazowsze folk ensemble. They are separated when Wiktor defects to the West, but their paths are destined to cross again.
