We debated whether or not it was a good idea to delve THIS DEEP into the world of European "art-house" film so early on, but hey, this is one of the best works by one of my personal favorite directors, Krzysztof Kieslowski. The film is "The Double Life Of Veronique", easily one of the most beautiful films of the past 30 years, but unseen by most. Starring Irene Jacob (currently seen in Showtime's "The Affair"), "The Double Life of Veronique" is a borderline fantasy film - well, no... it IS a fantasy film, in so many ways. It doesn't feel of this Earth, and the world we experience in the film is wholly unique to Kieslowski's vision as a storyteller. I suggest you check it out, even if only to study the cinematography.

I was way out of my depth on this one. Looking forward to watching it again though.

LOL, I thought that actually worked well... given 99.99% of everyone would be coming from your POV.
