The Unbearable Lightness of Being (Nesnesitelná lehkost bytí) is a must see movie and sure a must read book of Milan Kundera. It is is a 1984 existential novel about the artistic, sexual and intellectual life of two men, two women – Tomaz, Tereza, Sabina, Franz and the adorable dog Karenin - and their lives in the Prague Spring (period of political liberalization in Czechoslovakia during the era of its domination by the Soviet Union after World War II). Although written in 1982, the novel was not published until two years later, in a French translation (as L'Insoutenable légèreté de l'être).
A film by Andy Wharol
In aware of this, movie $ makers often create good stories that explores that.
1970's Italian sexy horror
I don't know how many of you had the chance to watch "Beaches", from 1988, with Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.
But if you don't, here goes a plus recommendation to one of the most moving movies I had the chance to watch. The title in Portuguese is "Amigas para sempre" but don't foolish yourself thinking it's a girllie nonsense pass time movie. Not at all.
It is a lesson for life.
Both friends change so much emotions and circunstances in their lives and it's so interesting to see how life can play tricks on us...you laugh and cry and feel the same love and pain they do. Bette Midler's performance is a plus and the sound track is perfect from the beggining to the end.
The song I downloaded from Youtube is a confession of admiration, secret jeaulousy, a wish of being and loving the other self. Enjoy!
