movie versus book for unbearable lightness of being
The movie for the unbearable lightness of being did a wonderful job including people's inner thoughts through dialogue. However, a lot of the novel's meaningfulness was lost in the movie. If I hadn't read the book, the meaning of lightness versus weight would have been hard for me to comprehend just through the movie. I like the portrayal of Tomas by Daniel Day-Lewis. Tomas seems rather cold-hearted at the beginning of Kundera's novel, by Lewis does a good job showing Lewis's inner conflict between his sexual impulses and his love for Tereza.
