From the PR...

Academy Award Winners Daniel Day-Lewis (My Left Foot, Gangs of New York) and Juliette Binoche (The English Patient) star in this rich, erotic, fascinating character study based on the novel by Milan Kundera and directed by Philip Kaufman (The Right Stuff). Nominated for two Academy Awards, The Unbearable Lightness of Being was awarded the BAFTA for Best Adapted Screenplay.

The Unbearable Lightness Of Being is a love story that begins during the 'Prague Spring', that 'dizzying liberalisation of communism' which was crushed by the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. Tomas (Day-Lewis), a prominent young brain surgeon, is a bachelor and epic womaniser whose erotic philosophy stipulates that all love be excluded from his life.

He meets his long-term mistresses only at intervals and never spends the night with a woman. Against all erotic principles Tomas marries Tereza (Binoche) but continues an established affair with Sabina (Lena Olin), free from the commitment of love. This is an eloquent and sensual story of a young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanising.
