Véronique is a beautiful young French woman who aspires to be a renowned singer; Weronika lives in Poland, has a similar career goal and looks identical to Véronique, though the two are not related.

The Double Life of Vronique follows two identical women: Weronika and Vronique (both played by Irne Jacob) who have a mysterious connection, despite living separate lives in different cities.
Kieslowski's triumph here is to explore themes that would normally appear fanciful, cheesy or sentimental - a film about dopplegangers exploring existentialism just wouldn't work outside European cinema in my humble opinion.
