The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★

“Don’t hang up...”

I appreciate a lot about this film, especially how beautifully it’s shot, and Irène Jacob’s fantastic performance(s), but unfortunately, I really couldn’t get into it. I think it’s the same issue I had with Kleślowski’s Blue where I could recognize what was so great about it, but it just leans so far away from my tastes and what I look for in a movie, that I just can’t get absorbed into what’s happening here.

Again, this film definitely has its merits, and I can get what people love it, but it’s just really not my thing. I sure as hell wish I loved it more though. Strong 5 to a light 6!
