nothing i can say would give this film enough credit. Andrei Tarkovsky is a poet, and he is a poet on film, the film is a bit confusing as some actors play 2 characters. the film is very personal and intimate. it is comprised of seemingly non related scenes depicting memories from childhood. Tarkovsky delivers some of the most striking cinematography i have ever seen, and i can easily say that the... read more

Description: Andrei Tarkovsky's THE MIRROR (1974) is his most personal and artistically daring film. A semi-autobiographical work, it interweaves poems, dramatic scenes, dreams and newsreels to evoke the inner symbolic world of the protagonist, his nostalgia for the past and his troubled relationships with his wife and mother in the present.

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""'Mirror,' a Mosfilm production, is not at all easy to understand, in the sense that it does not have the traditionally recognizable plot structure that is rarely tampered with by Soviet directors. There are flashbacks, slow-motion dream scenes, newsreels and a mixture of color for some sequences and black and white for others." - James Clarity"
