Let others in 1968 Prague fret over such things as a liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Prague surgeon and avowed womanizer Tomas is focused on the happiness of pursuit. He's determined to live with a lightness of being that's unfettered by things like commitment and Communism. A young doctor's quest for sex and his stumbling into love forms part of the rich storyline of this lyrical film from the landmark Milan Kundera novel, produced by Saul Zaentz and directed by Philip Kaufman. Daniel Day-Lewis, Juliette Binoche and Lena Olin indelibly form the romantic triangle at the center of Tomas' world. It's a shifting world of hope spoiled and renewed, of lives blighted by oppression and reinvigorated by deep, maturing love.
