The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★

Me: Wow this casting is insane, I wonder if they are twins in real life. 

Irène Jacob - Weronika/Véronique

I can already feel my brain adding this goof into the “memories to replay at 1 am” folder haha.

Anyway, I loved the technical side of this film! The camera work during Weronika’s orchestra scene is really immersive and the puppet show scene is beautifully montaged. The color grading adds a certain mystique to the film that transforms the experience into something ethereal and dream-like. I think I might just have to blind-buy the Criterion three colors trilogy blu-rays now.
