The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★★

This is film in a melancholy, minor key that truly defies a literary description. Anything I could write about it would only deflate the spell it puts the viewer under. It's been in my watchlist for over a year, but somehow, tonight, it immediately seemed to summon my attention. I'll only say that Irene Jacob is truly a captivating presence, and that the cinematography by, Slawomir Idziak, is quietly stunning. It's a beautiful film and a rich experience.
