The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★

I didn’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this.. 

Strange ambiance just as the last movie I saw from Kieslowski. Weird color grading, I definitely missed the core message of this. Still from a technical perspective it’s unique and I enjoyed the performances. Put me in this weird state while watching it. From what I’ve gathered from watching Kieslowski this far is his how dreamy they feel in both good and bad, while his message in A Short Film About Killing was clearer and for me it’s a bit muddled in this one, I’d say I possibly preferred A Short Film About Killing, but think this is inherently a better movie.. also this movie is very green.. and I don’t why, thought Green used to express disgust or sickness, but hell it looks good. 

That background music at a certain point sounded exactly like it was from Oblivion, idk I thought that was funny.. but the actual score / music was absolutely angelic and might be the best part of the whole movie.
