Two Line Reviews - #330

Movie: La double vie de Véronique (or) The Double Life of Veronique (French & Polish, 1991)

Plot: An opera singer in Poland dies of a troubled heart in a freak accident during a concert. Elsewhere in France, a music teacher finds inexpilcable disturbances and in her quest for answers, finds love with a not-the-normal person who captivates her attention and she finds the ultimate answers to her shocks.

  • Krzysztof Kieslowski deserves applause for bringing an ethereal subject to life giving a poetic touch to it!
  • Iréne Jacob has terrific scope for performing and she grabs it with the proverbial net and does an impeccable job! She is lovable as both the Polish Veronica and the French Veronique.
  • Music adds life to the scenes and so do the photography and locations (which could be said for all Kieslowski films!)
Poetic piece from the Polish Ace!
