The Double Life of Véronique

The Double Life of Véronique ★★★★★

Can people be connected in ways they’re unaware of? Are individuals connected by sensation? How much of our personality and individuality really belongs to us? The Double Life of Veronique asks unanswerable questions and grows ideas inside you that will remain forever.

TDLOV’s sheer beauty is an unexplainable, impossible to put to words thing. Sure, I can talk about the technical achievements, the cinematography’s beautiful colour palette, the visual poetry and how Irene Jacob is possibly one of the most beautiful actresses of all time, but the bond between me and this examination of the spiritually connected Veronique’s lives is frustratingly impossible to materialize in words, so I won’t even try.

Kieslowski’s mystical masterpiece is a thing not to be read about, but to expierence. Beautiful in all senses, it is a film both for the eye and the spirit. This is a piece of art of the highest order. It proves that sometimes, the unexplainable is the most fascinating.
