With every shot constructed with the utmost precision & beauty, the Double Life of Veronique is an incredibly haunting & romantic film. Both a reverie on chance & coincidence and an exploration of existentialism, Kieslowski made one of his masterpieces & is one of the best artists to ever grace the art form. Irene Jacob gives a wonderful performance as well. A work of art to get lost in time after time, again & again
Beautifully directed, cinematography is magical. Music in this is beautiful, goes along with story and builds you up perfectly. The way the lives touch one another surprised me. With a topic like this i thought both of them would meet in some way, and that's exactly what happened but not in the way i thought it would be. So mystical. So romantic and naive. Full of emotions
That glistening glob of snot in Irène Jacob's nose is true acting, for sure. I'm really not sure what to make of this film though. Whatever Kieślowski is communicating is very subtle, and while I can glean some kind of loose interpretation from the images he presents us with, I think I'm missing something. So much mystery.
Because of this film I discovered Kieslowski and I'll be forever thankful. The puppet's scene is one of my faves in cinema. I loved everything: Irene Jacob's performance, cinematography, and special note to Zbigniew Preisner soundtrack. Kieslowski films have life in them.
