That feeling when you’re wrong about something you REALLY should’ve known. She followed this up with “Jack’s my favourite too. Chinatown has Faye Dunaway in it, yeah?” 😑
You’ll find few films more powerful than The Double Life of Veronique, although it could take multiple viewings to get past the mesmerising visuals and stunning orchestral score and appreciate the emotional core.
Irène Jacob plays two characters; Weronika, a polish choir soprano and her double, Vèronique, a French music teacher. They don’t know each other but they share a strong emotional bond which is reflected in the incredible cinematography, the powerful music, the colours, the movements and reflections.
I enjoy revisiting this film by Krzystof Kieślowski because it moves me in a unique way that not only makes me think but forces me to feel something strong when I do.
A true metaphysical masterpiece that gets better with every viewing.
Gian Maria Volonté reminded me of Jon Hamm at times. Great film with a bizarre soundtrack by Ennio Morricone.
