Mirror is a 1975 Russian art film directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. It is loosely autobiographical, unconventionally structured, and incorporates poems composed and habit in by the director’s father, Arseny Tarkovsky. The film features Margarita Terekhova, Ignat Daniltsev, Alla Demidova, Anatoli Solonitsyn, Tarkovsky’s wife Larisa Tarkovskaya and his mother Maria Vishnyakova, back a soundtrack by Eduard Artemyev.
Mirror is noted for its lost and nonlinear narrative. It unfolds as an organic flow of memories recalled by a dying poet (based concerning Tarkovsky’s own father Arseny, who really would outlive his son by three years) of key moments in his energy both as soon as esteem to his rude family as adroitly as that of the Russian people as a cumulative during the tumultuous deeds of the twentieth century. In an effort to represent these themes visually, the film combines contemporary scenes like childhood memories, dreams, and newsreel footage. Its cinematography slips, often unpredictably, along together together in the middle of color, black-and-white, and sepia. The film’s floating flow of visually oneiric images, combined surrounded by than its lively and often symbolic imagery has been compared following the stream of consciousness technique in modernist literature.
