As one of Tarvoksy’s most beloved works, Mirror is noted for its loose and non-linear narrative, similar to the stream of consciousness technique in modern Literature. It unfolds as a flow of memories and dreams from a dying poet presenting key moments from his life both with respect to his immediate family and the tumultuous Russian history of the 20th Century.
Mirror is an astounding semi-autobiographical filmic composition of a dying man’s recollections, dreams and even thoughts from various moments in his life.
Undeniably one of the most innovative and bold films ever made, Mirror is an unprecedented use of the cinematic medium to portray the nature of human memory and how it profoundly speaks on a person’s existence.
