Critic's reviews

Gary Couzens, The Digital Fix

Maria Sadowska’s previous film and debut feature, Women’s Day (Dzień kobiet, 2012) told a present-day story of a woman’s battles in a man’s world, and The Art of Loving does the same, on a larger scale and in a historical setting. The film is well-paced and has a light touch, and a refreshingly frank but matter-of-fact approach to its subject matter – though keeping within the bounds of a BBFC 15 certificate – that’s in the spirit of the woman whose story it is.

Asif Becher, The Michigan Daily

“The Art of Loving” directed by Maria Sadowska (“Women’s Day”), pays appropriate tribute to this brilliant and brave individual, as it’s a funny, heartfelt and earnestly sexy movie.
