The Double Life of Veronique

1991 R

Irene Jacob stars in a dual role as Polish singer Weronika and French music teacher Veronique -- two women who share a deeply haunting emotional bond, though neither is consciously aware of the other's existence. Krzysztof Kieslowski directs this universally beloved, enigmatic piece about identity and human connection, enhanced by an operatic score from Zbigniew Preisner and rich visual cinematography from Slawomir Idziak.
