Polish film director Paweł Pawlikowski on Saturday won the People's Choice Award 2019 for his film Cold War at the 32nd European Film Awards (EFA) in Berlin.
Fighting against both Nazi Germany and Soviet occupation during WWII, Kaczorowski went on to become president-in-exile until Poland’s first free presidential elections took place following the collapse of communism.
Writing on social media, the handsome 42-year-old actor from Legnica said: “I am so happy and my heart beats like before ‘Destined for Blues’ and ‘Gods’ [two Polish biographical movies he starred in].”
Shot in France, with dialogue in French, English and Arabic, the series called The Eddy directed by La La Land director Damien Chazelle sees Kulig star as a nightclub singer.
Hollywood gossip machine goes into overdrive with rumours that director Chloé Zhao has specifically asked for the 41-year-old to star in her new movie because of his ‘imposing physical presence’.
‘Cold War’ had been in line for three Oscars but on a disappointing night for Polish cinema it had to go home with nothing.
Actress Joanna Kulig, one of the co-stars of the acclaimed film ‘Cold War’, gives birth to boy just days before the Oscars.
Pawlikowski, who won best director at Cannes, has also been nominated along with the film’s cameraman Łukasz Żal, who was cinematographer on Pawlikowski's previous Oscar-winning film Ida.
If the Cold War had gone hot, scientists would have weathered the storm in what is now one of Warsaw’s strangest tourist sights.
