Synopsis

Polish choir soprano, Weronika, has a double. She is Véronique, a French music teacher. They have no blood relation and lead very different lives but are otherwise identical: sharing a sublime gift for singing, a cardiac disorder, and a mystical awareness of each other’s existence.

Our take

Irène Jacob won Best Actress in Cannes for her magnificent dual roles in this lyrical masterwork from Polish auteur Krzysztof Kieślowski. With its luminous cinematography and unforgettable score, The Double Life of Véronique is a magical and enigmatic tale of love, ambition, and twinned identities.
