Servais, an independent photographer, meets Nadine, formerly a popular actress, currently starring in X-rated movies. Although the woman is married, the protagonists are attracted to each other by a truly magnetic passion. Servais decides to borrow money from a gangster to finance the performance of "Richard III", meant to help his mistress regain the erstwhile glory. "That Most Important Thing: Love" is a poignant study of the evolution of a romantic feeling and the first film by Żuławski to be executed in the West.
