The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★

don’t mistake my rating for thinking this is overrated or anything negative.

I loved it, the yellows and reds, the score, Irene Jacob’s performance.

It’s just I know this will come alive for me in full form on a rewatch. A film like this deserves another dive into its short, somehow completely connected world.

Kieslowski is a master at provoking emotion while challenging your intellect, or maybe challenging emotion by provoking your intellect. Like all of his works, watching it a second time will make everything hit even harder as you think even more.

Sort of late, so short “notes”.
