A solid 3 stars. Not so much a love story, although there is a lot of talk about love and sex. I didn't like any of the characters, nor Tomas, nor Tereza or Sabina or Franz. It's a cold, intellectual, philosophical essay on love, sex, the human condition, the human psyche : that I liked. The plot, the characters felt plastered on the essay and were ultimately boring. But the ideas, the philosophy was interesting.
