The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★★

Krzysztof Kieślowski's The Double Life of Veronique follows the story of a young Polish woman named Veronica who wants to pursue a career as a singer and really has an amazing voice that sent chills down my spine. As the film begins she has gone to visit her auntie and she is singing in a choir and is noticed by a choir director who is married to a very famous conductor and she is soon chosen to be the one who sings at a concert. She comes across as a very happy person, so full of life and therefore very likeable.

There is a time in the film where she sees a splitting image of herself in a bus but the other woman doesn't see her, Veronica is obviously confused. Now we are introduced to her lookalike who resides in Paris, her name is Veronique and she is a school teacher. Both women don't only look the same but they have the same personalities and reflect each other in many ways, this is a movie that I understood but find hard to truly explain as it just has to be experienced. I was in awe with the music it was so beautiful and hypnotic, it's really great on all counts and really amazed me.
