ZERKALO (MIRROR)

  • U
MIRROR

For perhaps his most daring experimentation with film structure, Andrei Tarkovsky intersperses scenes from three eras – a childhood in the countryside, the Great Patriotic War and post-war maturity – to create a mirror reflection of his own life and those of his parents. Abandoning linear narrative in favour of dramatising disjointed shards of memory, in Mirror Tarkovsky pioneered a poetic cinematic language whose images perfectly portray the essence of his characters.
