Storyline

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.

Good movie24 January 2016

The intensity of human relationships, romance and existence are anaylsed against the backdrop of the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. Lots of drama amd complex plot turns and emotions feature all the way through. Daniel Day-Lewis and Juliette Binoche are terrific in this movie.

Worth watching01 September 2012
