The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Tomas is a handsome doctor in Prague with a penchant for lovely women. When he asks them to take their clothes off, they gladly comply. His mistress,  Sabina, is a sensual artist who looks incredible when she wears her hat to bed.  He meets the bashful Tereza (Juliette Binoche) while performing an operation at a spa. She overcomes her shyness and she too, takes her clothes off. They soon marry, but Tomas has a hard time parting with the sensuous Sabrina and her black derby. This lengthy film (3 hours) is an accurate rendering of Milan Kundera's erotic novel with the same title. Daniel Day-Louis is Tomas and the lovely Lena Olin is Sabina. You may never see three cuter asses in one film.
