The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★★

Transcendent, beautiful, and haunting. This is a film that gives a voice to some of the most indescribable and deepest emotions I know, but always on the periphery of life, waiting for our awareness to reach out and expand into it. A still, fragile beauty suffused with richness that is always within reach in our daily lives outside of full comprehension and understanding and beyond any flattening religion or ideology. 

Describing what this film is “about” is impossible and ultimately besides the point. Every shot is a wonder of composition; each facial expression, each play of light. This film is like recalling a memory you never knew you had. 

This work has wormed it’s way into my being and I recall it often. I’m grateful this was made.
