Busy day visiting Harlech for SPLICE project. I watched "The unbearable Lightness of Being" again (for first time in years) yesterday. I think it's my favourite film of the last 20 years. It seems almost perfect in every way, and the music is particularly haunting - especially the piano music which accompanies Juliet Binoche's swimming. The first improvisation is not an improvisation, but Janacek's "The Madonna of Frydek" from "On an overgrown Path" (sorry about the laborious page-turn!). The second improvisation (which is an improvisation!) is a complete antidote to this sensual world - a joke.
