L'IMPORTANT C'EST D'AIMER | THAT MOST IMPORTANT THING: LOVE (1975)
Directed by Andrzej Żuławski
That Most Important Thing: Love is a beautifully shot movie about three people seeking to live, love and survive. Romy Schneider's performance is stunning as a porn actress desperately in love with a man who doesn't want to live anymore. In this film Żuławski depicts a modern world of arrogant actors, pornographers, drugs and money - a world in which love can be the only saving grace.
This explosive film is directed by Polish director Andrezej Żuławski (Possession). Żuławski comes from the Polish theater background which includes an over-wrought, intense, emotional-expressionistic acting style. This expressive power can go off like a hidden keg of dynamite, causing everything to suddenly go really haywire.
Actress Romy Schneider was absolutely right to consider this film as her major professional achievement. Żuławski is at his height here, because his typical romantic excesses perfectly fits the theme of the subject. You can expect a series of highly charged emotional performances which are executed almost like electric shocks.
