The authoress considers ambiguity and controversy which accompanied the reception of the work of Walerian Borowczyk. Most films made by Borowczyk, including the erotic ones, escape the rules of classic cinema or even art cinema, placing the films somewhere on the edge of film vanguard, visual art, and a provocation. She considers the hypothesis that Borowczyk as a director was a film maker with a surrealist temperament. Following this notion she considers Borowczyk's involvement with the surrealist movement and points to similarities between hyper-realist ideology and Borowczyk's creative stance. The article concludes with an analysis of Borowczyk's 'Immoral stories' (Opowiesci niemoralne, 1974) made from the perspective of the surrealistic aesthetics and ideology.
