''The Double Life of Véronique'' (French: ''La double vie de Véronique'', Polish: ''Podwójne życie Weroniki'') is a 1991 film by Krzysztof Kieślowski, also the director of ''BlindChance'' and the ''ThreeColorsTrilogy''. It tells the story of two women called Weronica and Véronique, from Poland and France respectively. So what’s the catch? Both women look exactly the same, share a lot of personality traits and seem to be aware of each other’s existence. However, they never interact with each other, except for a small distant scene.

The movie is filmed beautifully, has an ethereal atmosphere and a beautiful main actress (Irène Jacob), so you really don’t have a reason to not watch it. Unless, of course, you dislike philosophical movies.

!!The film provides examples of:

* {{Doppelganger}}
* ExecutiveMeddling: The American release has an alternate ending at the request of Miramax.
* [[FakeBand Fake Composer]]: The story features recurring references to a Dutch classical composer named Van den Budenmayer, and his music is even performed in a concert. Only he never existed.
** Actually, that's part of a MythologyGag.
* {{Foreshadowing}}
* HollywoodHeartAttack: Averted. [[spoiler:Weronica]] has a very realistic and disturbing heart attack.
* IdenticalStranger: Weronica and Véronique. Of course, they’re both played by the same actress, [[CaptainObvious so…]]
* MythologyGag: The composer Van den Budenmayer is mentioned for the first time in an episode of ''TheDecalogue'', and again in the ''Blue'' and ''Red'' movies of the ''ThreeColorsTrilogy''.
