The Double Life of Véronique

"It is a romance about those moments we all sometimes have when we think we see ourselves at a distance." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

With introduction by Hamilton filmmaker, Terrance Odette

Sometime in the 1960s two girls are born at the same moment, countries apart. One grows up in a small town in Poland, the other in a provincial city in France. They are identical, sharing mannerisms, predilections and musical talent. They nurture ambition, hopes and loves and share the same rare heart disease. Life will depart from one but continue in the other, as if transmitting to another person, another body, through an unconscious unity of soul.

A film about the ineffable that makes no reference to religious dogma or explication. Through luminous photography and a haunting score, Kieslowski intimates the mysterious essence informing the texture of the visible world.

★★★★★ "It is as beautiful and mysterious as a poem and its formal elegance and conviction are unarguable." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
