Just like Alfred Kinsley's research and findings came as a bolt from the blue to America of the late 1940s and the 1950s, "The Art of Love," a book by Michalina Wisłocka, a Polish gynecologist and sexologist, aroused the interest of millions of Poles in 1976, when the country was still behind the Iron Curtain and mostly Catholic. Interesting as it may sound, there was way more to come. From Wisłocka's memoirs and another book published in 1986, we find out that despite having written the book, she was an asexual person and hadn't discovered her real sex life until she was over sixty when she went to a resort and met Jerzy, a marine, slightly younger than her, who served as the resort's cultural leader.
After her one month stay at the resort passed she came back to Warsaw and began suffering. In her memoirs she writes that once the affair ended she couldn't understand what was happening to her, she couldn't eat, drink or work. "I felt like a drug addict without drugs, feeling some kind of hunger which I couldn't satisfy."
That month out of Wisłocka's life, which will serve as the documentary's introduction, made us want to explore the feelings, emotions and experiences of mature people while making love to their partners. We have invited eight Polish celebrities (four women and four men including one couple and one gay person) and eight regular people to share their opinions with our audience.
The documentary is a beautiful and a bit romantic story about love, intimacy and sex. The characters are filmed in beautiful and sensual surroundings. The film is enriched by voluptuous music, emphasizing the characters and subtle images of love, closeness, beauty of the human body without unnecessary exposure to any sexual activity.
