A remarkable parable on the essential unknowability of human experience. How, outside of our homogenised worlds, the ephemera of images that we call "life" could be but a dream
February 21, 2011
A film that washes over the viewer and invites meditative contemplation about our awareness while swimming the big river of consciousness. [Blu-ray]

Haunting.

Erotic and mystical, a wondrous search for transcendence.

If Kieslowski's overarching metaphors about Weronika/Veronique seem strained, Jacob's sensuous and delicately nuanced performance will double your pleasure.
November 12, 2006
a film all about subjectivity
June 18, 2006
Kieslowski's most lyrical and metaphsical film, with a haunting performance from Irene Jacob, is also one of his most bizarre and enigmatic works--by design.
April 3, 2006
We see through a glass darkly, and often confusingly, but at least we see.
April 1, 2006
Compelling, challenging and irresistibly beautiful, this delicate metaphysical masterpiece only emphasises how much cinema lost through Krzysztof Kieslowski's tragically early death.
March 21, 2006
If Double Life is arguably only half as rewarding as some of Kieslowski's other films, then it remains an indelible entry in an outstanding career.
November 6, 2005
Satisfies as a study of spiritual unrest.
January 15, 2005
While this is the film that set the stage aesthetically for Kieslowski's masterful Three Colors trilogy, it is more mysterious than any of those films.

Don't even attempt to resolve that paradox, and The Double Life of Veronique will work on its own poetic terms.

This is a perfect example of a situation where a film doesn't have to make sense to be a compelling and wonderful film experience.
January 1, 2000
This movie achieves a rare grace: it tells a story that could only exist in the form of a movie (or, perhaps, as a piece of poetry).
January 1, 2000
It could be written off as blithe New Age-ism, if it weren't for Kieslowski's near metaphysical sense for emotional storytelling.
