The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★½

“all my life, i’ve felt like i was here and somewhere else at the same time.”

outstanding filmmaking, personifying melancholy and longing as cinematic aspects not compromised by any degree of redundancy nor artificial materialization, and instead, speaking and visualizing dissatisfaction and the sprawling questions of solitude through a kaleidoscopic lens and soulful performance in absolute harmony. Véronique is beautiful, saturated with tangible colors that radiate a profound mood with whatever shade is chosen, and deeply reflective as a mirror and a looking-glass all the same—Jacob’s performance is immaculate, and Kieślowski’s camerawork that emulates each and every sensation is nothing short of remarkable.
