Article: THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE, out now on Criterion

Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski made THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE towards the end of his long and illustrious career, and while fans will see similarities to his earlier works in terms of pacing and mood, VERONIQUE marked an arresting departure towards a deeply meditative, supremely metaphysical space. Though VERONIQUE offers little in the way of plot, it’s a hypnotic and thoroughly moving masterpiece.
