The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★½

Its an incredibly well-shot film but I truly despise the color palette. The green, orange, red is so ugly to me that even though the composition and everything is phenomenal, I hate looking at this film. Which isn't really a "flaw" and more personal taste but it's hard to highly rate a film you don't like looking at.

Also, it kinda feels like it was written by someone who has never had a conversation before. Everytime one of them talks to their dad I started laughing out loud and definitely wasn't supposed to.

Also also, (spoilers here) this puppet man is fully a stalker and the film is like yeah whatever. And when she starts sobbing uncontrollably and he just starts having sex with her despite her never saying yes???? That is gross!

The GOOD is that this DID have a pretty dope puppet show which I imagine is why it was recommended to me and that would be correct.
