“The Double Life of Veronique” (1991)


We debated whether or not it was a good idea to delve THIS DEEP into European “art-house” film world so early on, but hey, this is one of the best works by one of Chad’s personal favorite directors, Krzysztof Kieslowski. The film is “The Double Life Of Veronique”, easily one of the most beautiful films of the past 30 years, but unseen by most. Starring Irene Jacob (currently seen in Showtime’s “The Affair”), “The Double Life of Veronique” is a borderline fantasy film – well, no… it IS a fantasy film, in so many ways – It doesn’t feel of this Earth, and the world we experience in the film is wholly unique to Kieslowski’s vision as a storyteller.  Chad suggests you check it out, even if only to study the cinematography.

Performers of note: Irene Jacob.
