THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
1988, Saul Zaentz Co., 171 min, USA, Dir: Philip Kaufman

Director Philip Kaufman’s sublime adaptation of Milan Kundera’s almost unfilmable novel, with Daniel Day-Lewis in one of his finest performances as Tomas, a free-spirit Czech doctor torn between the love of vulnerable Tereza (Juliette Binoche), whom he marries, and worldly Sabina (Lena Olin), as all three are caught in the turmoil of the 1968 Soviet invasion. Jean-Claude Carrière collaborated with Kaufman on the masterfully balanced screenplay. “What is remarkable about THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING … is not the sexual content itself but the way Kaufman has been able to use it as an avenue for a complex story, one of nostalgia, loss, idealism and romance.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago-Sun Times.
