The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★½

nothing short of pure magic. only in film could something like this be created. every single shot looks like a painting, I can’t imagine how this looked before the criterion release but the restoration is so beautiful. the only reason I don’t go the full five (even in this, my 2nd viewing of it) is because some of the pacing in the 2nd half is a bit wonky for me. but otherwise, this is one of the rare films that’s beyond words, beyond description. I can’t wait to try and figure this out with every repeated viewing that’ll come down the line in the future.
