4/4 

This is one of the most wonderfully crafted films of all time. Good in every way: use of symbolism, acting, directing, story. Irène Jacob's performance is beyond incredible, setting herself perfectly both as the bouncy Polish Weronika and the staid, questioning French Véronique. I do not like plotless stories. Luckily this movie has a point though. I think it is the discovery of self and others and of life. It is a joy to watch this film.

Ein Gefühl

Our Daily Free Stream: Krzysztof Kieslowski - The Double Life Of Veronique (engl. subt.) Our Daily Free Stream: Krzysztof Kieslowski - The Double Life Of Veronique (engl. subt.) Das ist ein Film über ein Gefühl und wie alle Gefühle, kann es nicht näher mit Worten beschrieben werden. Die Kunst aber kann es herauf beschwören. Es ist das Gefühl, dass wir nicht allein sind. Da gibt es noch jemanden anderes ausser uns. In einem entfernten Sinn sind wir miteinander verbunden durch Gedanken. Wir können das nicht begreifen, es ist ganz einfach ein Gefühl.

Double Life of Veronique review

A film that reminded this rater of a cross between Persona, Back to the Future II and Mulholland Drive. The story of two ladies with things in common. Weronika (Irène Jacob) wins in a singing competition. While singing, she collapses and dies at a concert. Véronique (Irène Jacob), a music school teacher, felt sadness after making love. She views a marionette performance and feels in love with somebody. She learns that Alexandre Fabbri (Philippe Volter) is the puppeteer thru children's books.

Screenplay was though provoking with lines: "I'm alive." "You should change." - Antek "I feel that I am not alone in the world." - Weronika "I don't understand?" Véronique's father. Direction as always was meticulous, realistic and calculated. The performance of Irene Jacob was perfectio...
