The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique

The themes at play here - doubling, puppeteering, dream reality - are usually brain candy for me. Unfortunately I got absolutely nothing out of this. I kept waiting for something to mean anything, one image to rise above the rest, but nothing ever did. The ending is the stuff of parody too, a puppeteer musing that “I think I’ll call it The Double Life of ...” then stroking his french chin. A series of meaningless images using obscurity to paper over the cracks. It is pretty at least
