Double Life of Veronique, The ( double vie de Véronique, La ) 
Double Life of Veronique review
3.5/4 stars

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 perfection and sincere while the cinematography shines. The score was also elegant since one of the leads had to perform. Such in life, we encounter things unexplained and may have been thinking we could be somewhere or linked to a stranger. The Double Life of Veronique is a picture where one doesn't need clarity of plot but an engaging character intertwined somehow in this strange world filled with death, strangers, relatives, chances, coincidences, linkages and love, evidently portrayed in this beautiful French flick.
