Review 4K Movie

There are moments when talkativeness takes an embarrassing day off and gives way to silent amazement. Words are not needed to express admiration for the vocals of Christina Dae from The Phantom of the Opera or the impeccability of the Sistine Madonna. True beauty is delicate, it easily finds its way to the heart and makes it beat in anticipation of a soul mate somewhere nearby. Two girls with the same name - a Polish woman and a Frenchwoman - did not know each other and could only dream of knowing the happiness of meeting. What their eyes did not see - feelings spoke about that, the insinuating voice of intuition. There was no clarity and certainty in him, but there always remained a dream - about art, about love. Conquer the opera with the purest soprano, or reunite with a loved one? A cruel fate forced each of the Veronicas to choose one thing - for everything their world turned out to be too small.

The ambivalent parable of Kieślowski has little in common with the melodramatic anguish of worldly history. The mere use of a soft, golden-green light filter hints at the dreamy nature of the film, its emphasized utopianism. With some stretch, everything that happens could be considered a long, multi-phase dream. But still, life is before us. Double life. The very name - Veronica - refers to the gospel origins. The Christian saint once found healing with the clothes of Jesus, and the weak hearts of the heroines can only be helped by refusing to practice vocals. Both make their choice, and there is no one in sight who could influence it. It is as if fate itself takes the floor and measures the length of the thread of life, where there will certainly be ups and downs. The cycle of both girls has the same stops: music club, father's apartment, an unforgettable date, an unexpected observation. The first Veronica notices a mirror image in the bus window, and the second sees a man-made miracle created by the hands of a puppeteer. After these scenes, life seems to change pace: in one case it rapidly accelerates, in the other it deliberately slows down. The dream seems to be about to end, and the dreams will vanish. Why, how is this possible, and where next? There are many questions, but the answer is somewhere deep inside, and will be clear only at the appointed hour.

Of course, the director himself accurately calculated the time. An extraordinary story, worthy of the praise of Dostoevsky and Bergman, makes a revolution, and leaves the past as a shimmering sunbeam in a Parisian apartment. The astral relationship of the two Veronicas excludes visible contact, but it still happens - on a spiritual level. Kieslowski confirms his reputation as one of the most philanthropic creators from cinematography throughout the entire tape, but this trait of his is especially significant in the scene of the puppet show. One figure dies but is reborn. What is death if not the logical continuation of life? Probably, in someone’s pragmatic view, each of us will end up with a solid white light or, on the contrary, impenetrable darkness, but it’s not in vain that they say: “According to your faith, you will be rewarded.” But Pan Krzysztof believed in a completely different death - redemptive, merciful, highly moral, but simply beautiful. How glorious is rebirth as a butterfly! How amazing is the flight in the warm rays of the breathing freedom of the country! Yes, the homespun truth of the life of that time was reflected in the soft colors of the picture, but did not suppress it. "The Double Life of Veronika" marked the throwing off of socialist chains from Poland and along the way "guided" the director to the Western European cinematographic spaces. Nothing dissolves in a haze, the past is always with us, inviting us into ourselves as in a father's house, but the future is more important. And that it will be prosperous can be assumed as easily as believing in the skill of human hands.

The variety of conventions and halftones in the script prompts the search for connecting elements in the fates of both Veronikas. It can be assumed that there is still one heroine on the screen, as if caught in a looking glass and given the opportunity to live her life in different ways, guided by different priorities. There's a beauty to be found in each of the girls' tendency to grope by touch, and the superb cinematography contributes to that. The camera follows first one and then another heroine, snatching out facial expressions, making it possible to guess the train of thought and empathize with the impossibility of swimming against the current. A Polish woman and a French woman could say a lot to each other if their fate brought them together at a prosperous hour, but instead, each only has a small plastic ball with a tiny village inside and a string, as a symbol of a cardiogram and a mute confirmation of the suddenness of death. In their desires and dreams, girls are deprived of anything, but not loneliness. The most dangerous thing, much more insidious than a sneak attack, and it is not in the movie parable, because the author believes in the predestination of each event. Is it bad? Each heroine carries the discovery with an invisible weight, but since the most frequent guest on Irene Jacob's face is a smile, it can be assumed that the will from above is still good.

Melancholic piercing cannot be imagined as something material, it is dissolved in the air and becomes palpable only at truly important moments. With his inspired work, Kieślowski increased their number to the necessary sense of belonging. Weightless, musical fate on the threshold of global changes can and should be pleasant in a homely way. A light game of pastel shades, like the preface to the director's famous "color" trilogy, does not give anxiety a single chance to invade the heart. Perhaps, somewhere high above the clouds, each question finds its answer, but in life there is always a place for intrigue that silently steps nearby and makes you look out the window for a long time in order to see today a little more than yesterday. Everything will have its time - this is perhaps the main idea of ​​the film. Live and be ready to hear and understand what the inner voice will say one day. This can be dreamed of with a pure heart.
