One of the most emotional films I’ve seen, but emotional isn’t enough to describe it. “Veronique” is also about sensations and intuitions, those inexplicable existential feelings, like, for example, whether you feel you’re alone in the world or not. The mysteries that rule our lives beyond all those explanations that we offer to ourselves and to others. It’s wonderful that someone is able to express this in a movie.
One of the best art movies that I have seen full of deep beautiful colors, excellent camerawork and with a gorgeous Irene Jacob in the lead. Great story too with something to tell with a lasting impact on my soul as the movie take you through it's landscape of souls and beauty.
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
Veronique and Weronika are identical twins/doppelgängers unaware of each other’s existence, living in France and Poland respectively. Despite being unaware of each others existence they have formed a special bond, so when one succumbs the other feels an unexplained crisis. A stupendous film with a phenomenal score, color tinting and puppeteering. Irène Jacob was a true screen goddess.
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.
