Critic Reviews for La Double Vie de Véronique (The Double Life of Veronique)
We see through a glass darkly, and often confusingly, but at least we see.
Don't even attempt to resolve that paradox, and The Double Life of Veronique will work on its own poetic terms.
It operates purely on visual juxtapositions, emotion and the presence of lead actress Irene Jacob. In its own terms, it's subtly precious.
The parts do not quite fit, and anyway this is not a puzzle to be assembled. It is a romance about those moments we all sometimes have when we think we see ourselves at a distance.
Audience Reviews for La Double Vie de Véronique (The Double Life of Veronique)
A strange but interesting film which unfortunately did nothing for me. It was too confusing trying to work out what was happening and when and what exactly Jacob's facial expressions were meant to represent. Left me with too many questions however the message that life is fragile and you should cherish every moment is very heart warming.
Krzysztof Kieslowski's "The Double Life of Veronique" is a sensitive and awe inspiring experience. Kieslowski is exploring the basic idea of the Counterpart Theory in Metaphysics. If you can grasp that theory and understand the long standing 'double' troupes (they range from Dostoyevsky's famous story 'The Double' to as recently as "Another Earth") you will begin to unlock the film. On the surface Irene Jacob is terrific and the cinematography is incredible (all those colors!). "The Double Life of Veronique" is a wonderful and complex experience that is immensely rewarding to committed viewers but beware that the film will be extremely confounding if merely 'watched.' Also, many people think the film is not 'meant to be figured out.' I wholeheartedly disagree. I think the film fits it's pieces together quite well- but again, it goes back to Counterpart Theory. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counterpart_theory
A visually radiant film about the universal interconnectedness of human beings. While some may be distraught by how many loose ends that Kieslowski leaves in the film, his penchant for rich storytelling will surely satisfy those viewers who choose not to ponder the metaphysical questions that this film brings up. It is contemplative, incredibly well acted, and just simply a gorgeous film to watch.
