THIS EVENT IS NOW AT CAPACITY. YOUR NAME WILL BE ADDED TO THE WAITLIST: The Double Life of Veronique
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16 // 6:30 – 9:00 P.M.
Location: Maison Française East Gallery, Buell Hall
Veronique (Irène Jacob) is a beautiful young French woman who aspires to be a renowned singer; Weronika (also Jacob) lives in Poland, has a similar career goal and looks identical to Veronique, though the two are not related. The film follows both women as they contend with the ups and downs of their individual lives, with Veronique embarking on an unusual romance with a Alexandre Fabbri (Philippe Volter), a puppeteer who may be able to help her with her existential issues. Roger Ebert: “The movie has a hypnotic effect. We are drawn into the character, not kept at arm's length with a plot… This is one of the most beautiful films I've seen.”
