(The Mirror)
USSR, 1974, Andrei Tarkovsky
Andrei Tarkovsky, the acclaimed master of Russian cinema
and one of the world’s greatest film artists, takes a moving
and personal turn with this profound and deeply enigmatic
meditation on the nature of memories, good and bad, from
childhood to adult life, family, relationships and on life in
Russia during the bleak days of WWII. A semiautobiographical work, it interweaves poems, dramatic
scenes, dreams and newsreels to evoke the inner symbolic
world of the protagonist.
THE MIRROR is not just a bravura display of a film director
at the peak of his poetic powers; it is also a loving homage
to the innocence and mysteries of childhood and is
ultimately as much a window through the filmmaker's poetic
gaze as it is a reflection of his personal passions and ideals.
