How much should film-makers presume knowledge of history and politics?
Less than those of Cold War, I would venture - otherwise they will be excluding many potential audience members.
I came to this conclusion when Mrs W confessed to being confused by the political landscape of the period between the late 1940s and mid-1960s which plays a crucial part in Pawel Pawlikowski's love story.
I had the good fortune to take a European Studies degree during the Cold War so could piece together what was happening during this picture
However, it was not easy. Despite its great acclaim, we both felt there required greater explanation to unravel some of its scenes.
That said, I would presume that Polish audiences, at whom it is aimed, will have a total grasp on how their nation was overrun by the Germans during the Second World War and handed over to the Soviets thereafter.
Where the confusion lies is how being in the Eastern Bloc affected travel to the West.
This is important after a lovelorn conductor (Tomasz Kot) defects to West Berlin during his orchestra's performance in the East.
That causes a split from his singer girlfriend (Joanna Kulig) who misses a vital rendezvous with him.
However, she later appears in Paris and there is a brief meeting between the two in Yugoslavia.
How was she free to wander around in France and what was Yugoslavia's political standing at the time? I honestly don't know.
This lack of elaboration affects the flow of a movie which has received wide acclaim but, in our view, looks great but lacks emotional pull.
The latter might be down to us not being invested in characters who are self-obsessed.
Cold War begins intriguingly enough with the conductor and colleagues bringing together an ensemble of musical country folk who are so successful they tour Europe.
Kulig's character is a fireball from the start, tempting men with her disregard for convention alongside her dazzling good looks.
But hers and the conductor's match is not made in heaven and both political forces and individuals prise them apart.
Filmed in black and white, Cold War recreates the period with such faithfulness and style that it is difficult to believe it was made in the 21st century.
But did it grab us? I have to say not really.

Reasons to watch: It is a great-looking film
Reasons to avoid: Its backstory needs a better explanation

Laughs: None
Jumps: None
Vomit: None
Nudity: Yes
Overall rating: 6/10

Director quote - Pawel Pawlikowski: "My mother was 17 when she met my father; he was ten years older. It was a great romantic love. Then they quarrelled [and split up]. Then they came together again and had me. And then they quarrelled again and divorced and had other partners, a husband even. Then they left the country separately. Then they met in the West again."

The big question - Does love really conquer all?
