Stanley's Film Club : La Double Vie de Véronique


18-Apr-2017 13:41

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s international breakthrough La Double Vie de Véronique remains one of his most beloved films; a ravishing, mysterious rumination on identity, love, and human intuition. Irène Jacob is incandescent as both Weronika, a Polish choir soprano, and her double, Véronique, a French music teacher. Though unknown to each other, the two women share an enigmatic, emotional bond, which Kieślowski details in gorgeous reflections, colors, and movements.

Aided by Slawomir Idziak’s shimmering cinematography and Zbigniew Preisner’s haunting, operatic score, La Double Vie de Véronique is an unforgettable symphony of feeling.
