I've heard of the "Unbearable lightness of being"...but not the "Unbelievable lightness of being".

A sequel, perhaps?

This has been gnawing at me since this place opened....

"I see," said the blind man.

Of all people, you would be the one to let that get under your skin!

If you're gonna do these things, you may as well do them right.

Great film, too.

But she was too polite to mention it :D

That one's been puzzeling me for months, I decided to ignore it and just pretend it was intended as an existential commentary instead.... :D

"Unbelievable lightness of being"? Sounds like a title of an exisiencial novel.

I don't know what "Unbearable lightness of being" is. Dave could you enlighten me?

P.S. Does anyone here bet at horse/racetracks??? :confused:

It was an acclaimed novel by Milan Kundera, turned into a film by Phillip Kaufman in 1988.

'Tis a film with Mr Day-Lewis, and I quote:

Set in 1960's Czechoslovakia, just prior to the Soviet invasion. A womanising brain surgeon, a naive young woman and a beautiful model become involved in an intense yet tragic love triangle.
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.

And no I don't go to the races, I'd just imbarress myself by shouting "come on Dover; move your bloomin ar*e!":D

And I'm a cinamon junky myself, though I've got to stop eating them becasue I polished off a box last week,a nd put on 6lbs! http://help.microsoft.com/!data/en_us/data/messengerv46_msn.its51/$content$/embaressed_smile.gif

The Unbearably unbelievable lightness of being DaveJ while watching "My left foot" before Daniel Day Lewis' best day at the track, betting on "Last of the Mohicans".

That works for me, John!

I wonder if its a copyright issue?

No, you are not exaggerate.

I still think the term 'unbelievable lightness of being' should be snapped up by an ad company for a new line of margarine, or fabric conditioner.....
