LOVE EXPRESS is an account of a tumultuous relationship between high art, sexuality and the market illustrated by the puzzling career of maverick filmmaker and visual artist Walerian Borowczyk, celebrated by film critics and festivals in the 1970s and swallowed by the soft-porn circuit in the 1980s. How does one get from creating cutting-edge work and competing in Cannes to being labeled an erotic filmmaker? The film is an original insight into the twist and turns of the sexual revolution and its aftermath.The film features interviews with Borowczyk’s collaborators, filmmakers and leading intellectuals putting his works into perspective, including Terry Gilliam, Bertrand Bonello, Neil Jordan, Andrzej Wajda, Patrice Leconte & Slavoj Žižek.
