Critics reviews

The film is designed to make us fall in love with the stunning face on screen… Few but Kieslowski could execute such a film; though it welcomes analysis, it spigots ethereal sensuality and a universal human understanding. A finespun balance of candor and complexity, Véronique confronts the nameless, the invisible, the dark matter surrounding all of us and the inevitability that we’re all banded together via life, and via death.
