This transcendent, lyrical and enigmatic tale of duality and yearning is one of the most acclaimed films by the masterful Polish auteur Krzysztof Kieslowski, director of 'Dekalog' and the 'Three Colours' trilogy. 'Red' star Irene Jacob is utterly captivating in the twin roles of Veronique and Weronika, two young women leading totally separate lives in France and in Poland, yet each strangely aware of the other's presence. Despite their different backgrounds, the two share not only many of the same likes, foibles and prodigious musical talents, but also the same wisdom, inspiring one to unconsciously avoid making the same mistakes in life as the other. Co-written by Kieslowski's regular collaborator Krzysztof Piesiewicz, and shot by 'Dekalog' and 'Blue' cinematographer Slawornir Idziak, the film also features a haunting and unforgettable score by the incomparable Zbigniew Preisner.
