The Double Life Of Véronique (Kieslowski, 1991)

This one might as well have been called Green. Enchanting. The scene where Weronica dies is, imo, one of the most hauntingly beautiful scenes put to film, particularly when the camera focuses on the violinists and the music becomes loud and dissonant. A fine companion piece to Kieslowski’s Three Colours: Red, also starring Irene Jacob, an actress who’s vulnerability and humility is extraordinary!
