Before the highly charged backdrop of the Prague Spring
in 1960s Czechoslovakia, womanizer Tomas (Daniel Day-Lewis) juggles
his love for the romantic Tereza (ingénue Juliette Binoche)
with his lust for the free-spirited artist Sabina. This sexy adaptation of Milan Kundera's book is a sensuously philosophical look at such abstract concepts as Nietzsche's eternal return, trust and kitsch.
