Two girls are born on the same day in 1968, one in Poland, the other in France. One is called Weronika and the other Veronique. They both are raised by loving parents, both of their mothers died young and they both have good relationships with their fathers. And even though they grew up thousands of miles apart, they both had this sense that they were not alone. That somewhere there is a counterpart to themselves.
This is the heart of the Double Life of Veronique, and yet the film is so much more than this. Directed by
