Unbearable Lightness of Being Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Daniel Day-Lewis stars as Tomas, the happily irresponsible Czech lover of Milan Kundera's novel, which is set in Prague just before and during the Soviet invasion in 1968. Lena Olin and Juliette Binoche are the two vastly different women who occupy his attention and to some extent represent different sides of his values and personality. In any case, the character's decision to flee Russian tanks with one of them--and then return--has profound consequences on his life. Directed by Philip Kaufman, this rich, erotic, fascinating character study with allegorical overtones is a touchstone for many filmgoers. Several key sequences--such as Olin wearing a bowler hat and writhing most attractively--linger in the memory, while Kaufman's assured sense of the story inspires superb performances all around.

Academy Awards

Unbearable Lightness of Being received Academy Awards nominations for Best Screenplay Based on Material From Another Medium (Jean-Claude Carrière, Philip Kaufman) and Best Achievement in Cinematography (Sven Nykvist).
