The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★

Two women, one French and one Polish, share a mysterious connection that goes beyond their passion for music and other traits they share. Both are motherless, enjoy sex without restraints, are sensitive and have fragile health; their paths have only crossed once, they do not know each other, but they can sense that they're not alone. When a tragic event changes the life of one of them, the other cannot help but feel incomplete.

La double vie de Véronique is a beautiful spiritual and philosophical dissertation in which Krzysztof Kieślowski reflects on the human being and its very essence, the fragility of life and and the possibility that our destiny is unavoidable. Worth mentioning are the subtle performance of the beautiful and vulnerable Irène Jacob, the precious cinematography, and the wonderful score of Zbigniew Preisner. Poetic, ambiguous, and emotionally resonant work whose ethereal atmosphere surround the beholder with its golden light while witnessing an enigmatic communion and the fulfillment of fate.
