GDYNIA: The box office hit biopic The Art of Loving. The Story of Michalina Wislocka directed by Maria Sadowska will vie in the main competition of the 42nd Gdynia Film Festival (18-23 September 2017). The film was released in Polish cinemas by Next Film on 27 January 2017 and is the top Polish box office title of the year with 1,794,209 admissions to date.

The film follows the life of Michalina Wisłocka, a doctor who revolutionised the sexual life of the whole country during the communist regime. "Wisłocka was a brave and independent woman, who wanted to teach everyone how to be happy in their relationships. Her character is even more fascinating now in Poland, where the political situation forced us to revisit some of these issues", director Maria Sadowska told FNE.

The leading role is played by Magdalena Boczarska and the cast includes Piotr Adamczyk, Justyna Wasilewska, Eryk Lubos, Danuta Stenka, Karolina Gruszka, Borys Szyc, Wojciech Mecwaldowski, Arkadiusz Jakubik and Artur Barciś.
The film was produced by Watchout Productions in coproduction with TVN S.A., Orange S.A. and Agora S.A.. The budget was 1.5 m EUR / 6.7 m PLN, of which 467,560 EUR / 2 m PLN came from the Polish Film Institute.

The film was shot from May to July 2016. It was released by Odeon on 70 screens in the UK and Ireland on 31 March 2017. After its opening weekend, the film was the fourth most watched premiere and came eleventh in the overall box office.
