Poetry, frame by frame. The double life of Veronique, of master director Krzysztof Kieslowski, is exactly the perfect picture from my point of view. This intriging story of two identical women (Veronique and Veronica) who don't know each other but can feel one another is simply a tour-de-force of emotions and imagery. Kieslowski go slowly to reveal the mystery behind those "twins" who are not, wit... read more

One of the most beloved films of Kieslowski experienced global success, a charming, mysterious study of identity, love and human intuition. The... read more

I guess most of Listal users don't know who Kieslowski was and that's a shame because he is responsible of some of the most striking movies of the 90's and 80's. This one is my favorite. It is a really mesmerizing picture and it is definitely worth a look.

Description: The Double Life of Véronique is the story of two young women who are -- in some mysterious and irresolvable way -- the same woman leading two different yet interconnected lives. Those familiar with Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski's later "Three Colors" trilogy of Blue, White, and Red will recognize his fascination with ... (more)

"Véronique is a teacher of music who lives in France. Weronika is a soprano singer in a Polish choir. Two women who have never met yet in the same manner that they share the same name just in different translations, they also appear to share the same "soul", thus causing them to share the same empathetically reactions to each other's individual experiences. A unique story idea for a film, The Double Life of Véronique is "poetically" directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski, famed director of the hi"

Filmic Fatal Six-Way (30 movies items)

"1. 8/12/2012 Starting off the entire project since I had the DVD laying around on my shelves for years now is Kieslowski's modern classic about two women, Véronique and Wéronique, who feel connected in the world despite living countries apart and never seeing one another. Music plays a large part in both their lives, meaning that herr director gets yet another chance to fill our ears and eyes with wonderful audiovisual moments featuring beautiful original music on par with that of Three Color"

"Kauniisti kuvattu ja sävelletty, hienosti näytelty ja silmäähivelevästi väritetty. Juoni on paikoitellen hieman pitkänoloinen, mikä toisaalta saattoi myös johtua katsontahetken armottomasta väsymyksentunteesta. Kiva leffa kuitenkin."

"16.1. Upeasti kuvatun leffan värimaailma miellyttää silmää, koska se ainakin näyttää siltä, että se on tehty valaistusta ja esineiden värejä hyödyntäen eikä paskafilttereillä. Tarina kahdesta toisiaan muistuttavasta naisesta vieraannuttaa ehkä hieman yliluonnollisuusaspektinsa vuoksi, mutta onneksi koko elokuva ei ole vain pelkästään kohtaloiden nivoutumista yhteen, vaan pätevästi luotuja keskusteluja ja hieman hukassa olevia ihmisiä kävelemässä suurkaupungissa etsimä"
