When asked to describe what subject matter The Double Life of Véronique deals with, director Krzysztof Kieślowski answered, ‘the realm of superstitions, fortune-telling, presentiments, intuition, dreams.’
Starring the then unknown Irène Jacob, the Cannes Jury and Critics prize-winning film follows two identical women who never speak to each other but nevertheless perceive an uncanny, psychic connection. Weronika is a Polish singer who abruptly leaves her home town and takes on a demanding solo part in a concert with tragic consequences while Véronique, who inadvertently photographs Weronika while on a trip to Krakow, is a music teacher living in Paris whose life shares a number of strange coincidences with her Polish counterpart.
