MIRROR- Tarkovsky (DVD)
A magnific masterpiece
Mirror is my favorite film, the best one I have ever seen, the one I like more. Interior richness, amounts of beauty and human quality have no limits. In this masterpiece, you find not only new and extraordinary cinema but poetry, painting, imagination, wonderful images and episodes.
Tarkovsky wanted to build a portrait of himself (as seen in a MIRROR) with his own fantasy, his dreams, some memories, some of his father's poems, episodes of life with his mother and his wife (the same artist),his house - wooden furniture and old lace curtains moved by the wind- his beloved country -green and wide and sunny- its landscapes and colors, some historical facts: an extraordinary refection of his intimate self.
No a plot, not a linear plan to be followed, not a more or less hidden idea to be found.
You are supposed to relax and enjoy it....and perhaps later, dream: if you were in the place of Andrei Tarkovsky and making a film about yourself, your life, your memories, your country landscapes, what images and what episodes, which colors, would you use !
Don't miss it. This film is an unforgettable experience, richer and deeper every time you see it and as time goes by.
