The Greatest Love of All Times (L’amour monstre des tous les temps)
A hectically spliced, slice in the life of Paris based Serbian surrealist, Ljuba Popović.
As with Brief von Paris, Borowczyk nimbly shoots Ljuba at work using a compact
16mm Russian Krasnogorsk camera. Edited in an almost stream of consciousness
fashion to the sounds of Wagner’s Tannhäuser overture, The Greatest Love
of All Times harks back to Borowczyk’s beginnings not just as a painter, but also
a keen documentarian of artists (e.g. Atelier de Fernand Léger, 1954).
