Film #27 of 2013: The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988)

IMDB Rating: 7.3/10

In 1968, a Czech doctor with an active sex life meets a woman who wants monogamy, and then the Soviet invasion further disrupts their lives.

Keeping my Daniel Day-Lewis marathon going, thought this would be a good and sexy film but it was actually kind of weird because it was almost like 3 movies in 1 – a raunchy movie with women showing their private parts a lot, a war film, and then at the end a family dog film! It is based on a book that I have not read, so perhaps that is why I felt it was missing something. I still like what it stood for and it was very cinematic and intriguing. DDDL was good in it, I just found the film kind of disjointed or something. It was no 9 1/2 weeks! But I still wouldn’t mind DDL being my doctor!

Juliette Binoche and Daniel Day Lewis in The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

7/10 (Good)
