Bi Gan was just 25 when he made this stunningly shot film.

Frame after frame after frame - I couldn't look away.

The Double Life of Veronique   2/04/20

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.

Halfway through the film I was thinking that Loach has misfired.

It's a very "allied" war film as opposed to a European war film, and for that reason alone it will get many of the big awards.

But the way in which Barnard captures them and films the actors is quite brilliant.

The film looks great and really captures the mid 70s feel.

This film is one of the best films of the year and perhaps one of the best films of the decade.

References to Apocalypse Now and Lord of the Flies are inevitable, but it does feel as if the film is alluding towards a metaphor for the frailties of Colombia or other South American nations even though we're never even told where these events take place.

As is the case with many great films, it is up to the viewer's interpretation.
