The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★★

What is so traumatic for her in the puppeteer’s performance is not that she sees herself reduced to a puppet whose strings are pulled by the hidden hand of Destiny but that she is confronted with the fundamental unconscious choice by means of which every one of us has to choose her or his existential project. Her escape from the puppeteer, back to the safe haven under the wings of her father, is her escape from freedom.

Slajov Žižek, The Double Life of Véronique: The Forced Choice of Freedom.
