Synopsis
"Shooting for the first time outside Poland, Kie?lowski gave full rein to his interest in metaphysical concerns, leaving politics and everyday realism behind for a highly expressionist spiritual fable of intertwined destinies. Two young women who are doubles unbeknownst to one another – Poland’s Weronika and France’s Véronique – reach an intersection in their lives where one finds love and the other death. The Double Life of Véronique evokes his most ravishing rumination on coincidence and synchronicity, in which the heightened expression of sound and image found renewed intensity through his collaboration with cinematographer S?awomir Idziak, composer Zbigniew Preisner, and sound designer Jacques Witta.
