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.

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 …
