  THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE / PODWOJNE ZYCIE WERONIKI

THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE / PODWOJNE ZYCIE WERONIKI
Poland / France / Norway 1991
/ Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski / 98 MIN
In Krakow the highly gifted singer Veronika catches a brief glimpse of her French double Veronique (both women are played by Irène Jacob). When the Polish singer drops dead during her first solo concert some months later, the French woman unexpectedly feels bereaved. Without ever having known her double, Veronique’s life seems to be influenced by that of her Polish namesake. One day, Veronique makes an unsettling discovery: She recognizes Veronika in her own holiday snapshots. Kieslowski’s mystical thriller, which was his first Franco-Polish coproduction, is largely sustained by Zbigniew Preisner’s enigmatic music and Slawomir Idziak’s magical images. Prize for Best Actress and FIPRESCI Prize, Cannes 1991.
