The double life of Véronique

(La double vie de Véronique)



Two women (one Polish, one French, both played by Jacob) subtly affect each other's lives while remaining total strangers. Unfolds like a half-hour teleplay with a supernaturally haunted premise stretched to a not quite oppressive 1 and 1/2 hours. Film, though, has enough going for it to pick up a cult, for which luminous lead Jacob deserves credit.
