by Krzysztof Kieslowski

kanal(1991) The Double Life of Véronique is a French-Polish-Norwegian drama directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski (Dekalog, The Three Colors Trilogy) and starring Irène Jacob. The film explores the themes of identity, love, and human intuition through the characters of Weronika, a Polish choir soprano, and her double, Véronique, a French music teacher. The two women do not know each other, and yet they share a mysterious and emotional bond that transcends language and geography.

The Double Life of Véronique is notable for Sławomir Idziak's innovative cinematography and Zbigniew Preisner's operatic score. It won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury and the FIPRESCI Prize at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival, and the Best Actress Award for Irène Jacob.
