Unbearable Beauty and perfection… An uninhibited examination of lust vs. love. One of the most sensually romantic films ever made – Unbearably Erotic and Beautiful – one of the best films ever made. One of the best movies ever made in every category. Very rare, a delight, and a true standard of film making excellence.
Tomas is a doctor and a lady-killer in 1960s Czechoslovakia, an apolitical man who is struck with love for the bookish country girl Tereza; his more sophisticated sometime lover Sabina eventually accepts their relationship and the two women form an electric friendship. The three are caught up in the events of the Prague Spring (1968), until the Soviet tanks crush the non-violent rebels; their illusions are shattered and their lives change forever.
