3 stars for the amazing acting by the dogs
Let me start with saying that I am no stranger to slow cinema or even to Kieślowski. With that said, I tried not to hold my expectations too high, even though I have heard only good things about this film and really wanted to like it.
Although visually striking, The Double Life of Véronique made me feel absolutely nothing, except for a slight unease caused by the blasé male gaze. I can see why people may like it, but it…
okay so today when I was returning this to the library where I borrowed it the librarian smiled and told me there is going to be a tv-series based on the film. we both got equally excited about that. then when I asked what my delay fee would be (since I didn't return it in time) he told me "we'll pretend it wasn't delayed".
that's how great this film is.
