The Double Life of Véronique (1991)

France/Poland/Norway
Director: Krzysztof Kieślowski; Cast: Irène Jacob, Philippe Volter, Sandrine Dumas, Aleksander Bardini, Louis Ducreux, Claude Duneton, Halina Gryglaszewska, Kalina Jędrusik

The Double Life of VéroniqueThe Double Life of Véronique is a contemplative postmodern drama about two seemingly identical women who share an inexplicable physical and emotional connection through their love of music. Irène Jacob’s soulful performance is mesmerizing as both Weronika, a Polish singer, and as Véronique, a French music teacher. By never explicitly stating how this connection could possibly exist, Kieślowski has time to explore the outcomes of the possibility – which are infinitely more interesting and complex (Klaus Ming June 2016).
