The Look of Love #3: Krystof Kieslowski’s The Double Life of Veronique (1991)

“So we put our arms around each other and started kissing. I think we were both somewhat surprised by how good it felt. Her mouth was the best thing my mouth had felt in quite a while. I guess I had simply forgotten that there is no satisfactory autoerotic substitute for a kiss. Our lips cooperated; they understood each other.”

—Nicholson Baker, The Fermata (1994)
