Milan Kundera, Odyssée des illusions trahies


FRA | 2022 | 53 mins | doc | dir. Jarmila Buzkova | in French with EN subs

This rare documentary – the first one on Milan Kundera – examines the singular and enigmatic trajectory of one of the most widely read writers in the world. From his time in Communist Czechoslovakia to his Parisian exile and writing in French, from his quest for glory to his withdrawal from public life, this moving homage conceived as an Odyssey sheds light on the author of The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
