Vasia Janakari recommends this movie:

tzanakariWeronika lives in Poland, Véronique in France. They have never met but their lives are connected metaphysically. The film deals with the search for identity through another person, the fear that real life escapes us, the unfamiliar feelings. The extremely interesting plot, the use of allusive narrative symbols through everyday objects-like glass that protects us but also keeps us away from the outside world-and the evocative music of Preisner, compose a little fragile masterpiece.
