Andrei Tarkovsky
1974 | 102 min | Colour and B/W | DCP

«For the first time,» he resolved, «I would use the means of cinema to talk of all that was most precious to me, and do so directly, without playing any kind of tricks.» Tarkovsky needed twenty rough cuts before arriving at the film’s intricately interflowing system of flashbacks and archival footage, often interpreted as unfolding in a dying artist’s final rays of consciousness. While Mirror, like all Tarkovsky’s films, pays homage to painting, music, and poetry, it also makes plain that the Russian director understood Mnemosyne to be the mother of the muses. Being a poet, he sought not only to retrieve the past but to reveal its essence – and in so doing to redeem an inherently flawed present. «The story not of the filmmaker’s life,» observes Tarkovsky scholar Robert Bird, «but of his visual imagination.» – Harvard Film Archive
