    The Unbearable unLightness of watching such tedious film and only to see that women can't help loving men-doctors even in prague - that is really something...

    It is really rare for me to find a film that is better than its printed counterpart, and to be honest I did not like Milan Kundera's book that much in the first place. I wanted to watch this solely because I love to watch Daniel Day-Lewis doing it's job: he never does it wrong. So my 2 stars and a half are for him and for the director, but if you want to enjoy the story, or you don't know which version to pick, my little push is towards the book!

    I've always loved this film and was shocked to read that DDL considered it a mistake and always regretted being part of it.

    For a movie that is nearly 3 hours long, I still have a hard time figuring out what the point of it was. The characters aren't very likable, the story drags on and jumps all over the place, and the ending feels like a sucker punch. Critics seem to love this movie, but I think it is just a bunch of libtards that are upvoting it for having lots of nudity. Maybe I just don't get it, which is fine. All I know is that I will never watch this again.

    What an abomination. Manages to turn a searingly beautiful book into a mawkish am-dram schlockfest.

    A portrait of sexuality versus love, the bold themes and terrific performances from a young Daniel Day-Lewis and Juliette Binoche help this passionate romance set against a dramatically changing continent last its elongated 3-hour running time.
