A beautiful film from Krzysztof Kieślowski. Led by unforgettable performance by Irène Jacob. To me, it’s not a great film from Kieślowski. But, it’s worth to watch. Its visual and music make this film looks beautiful. Yes, it is beautiful. Just beautiful.

Tremendous preparation for the three colour trilogoy. Beautiful in it's own way and probably the best use of colour I've seen in a movie. I think a more vivid presence of music would've made this piece a bit more everlasting, but I still feel the story is pretty present.
Kieślowski's story is layered with coincidences as it follows the parallel lives of two identical women - one Polish, one French - who don't know each other (despite one teasing encounter) but share a number of strengths and weaknesses. This is a highly stylized and dreamlike picture; exquisite in its presentation and complexity and one which respects the audience's intelligence, never giving up its secrets easily..
Kieslowski is a filmmaker obsessed with chance and fate, and it has never taken more center stage than in this film. Shrouded in mystery and surrounded by an air of magical surrealism, it holds a fairy tale aura about it, or maybe more like one of a dream. It's beautiful in many ways, and the most notable is the gorgeous green and gold tinted cinematography. Deep in mystery and full of beauty.
