”A documentary celebrating the work of Walerian Borowczyk, a director of unparalleled sensitivity, revered in the 1970s, who was later labelled as a maker of erotic movies.

Love Express. The Disappearance of Walerian Borowczyk features interviews with his closest collaborators, filmmakers and leading intellectuals who put his work into perspective, including Terry Gilliam, Bertrand Bonello, Neil Jordan, Andrzej Wajda, Patrice Leconte & Slavoj Žižek. It offers a rare insight into Borowczyk’s work and poses questions about artistic freedom. This unique artistic chronicle sheds light on his professional philosophy and artistic achievements and investigates how does one get from creating cutting-edge work and competing in Cannes to being labelled an erotic filmmaker.” – Production notes
