Helena Bonham Carter,
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.Written by

The house that Sabina is living in at the end when she's in America really belongs to film editor Walter Murch. See more »
The pig that attends the wedding is relatively newborn. When Tomas and Tereza return to Czechoslovakia after a stay in Geneva and a lengthy stay in Prague, they move to the farm where the farmer proudly claims the pig has grown.

This is a great work. The Actors, director and all involved in this production should be very proud. It is wonderful Film.
The acting is pure and real. Juliette Binoche is truly a remarkable actor. Her desperation is beautifully played ( "I know he loves me."). Only a cold heart could not be moved by such a truthful performance. Daniel Day-Lewis plays his part with such realism, that he seems almost not to be acting. That is the art of his game. Lena Olin is outstanding. The scene in which she complains about the music is, I feel, a classic.
I love this film, and thats what it is, a film. Not a book. This Film seems to tap into something truly moving and touching. Thank you to all the crew involved. A Classic of Cinema.
