  • "The Mirror mixes apparently personal anecdotes - a child's wartime exile, a mother's experience of political terror, a divorcing couple's quarrel, with slow motion dream sequences and poetic chunks of stark newsreels (the bombing of Barcelona, the Chinese cultural revolution, a boy cured of his stutter through hypnosis)."
  • "Mirror is the celebrated Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky's most autobiographical work in which he reflects upon his own childhood and the destiny of the Russian people. The film's many layers intertwine real life and family relationships - Tarkovsky's father, the poet Arseny Tarkovsky, reads his own poems on the soundtracks and Tarkovsky's mother appears as herself - with memories of childhood, dreams and nightmares. From the opening sequence of a boy being cured of a stammer by hypnotism, to a scene in a printing works which encapsulates the Stalinist era, Mirror has an extraordinary resonance and repays countless viewings."
  • "Drame poétique à saveur autobiographique. Le père d'un garçon de douze ans songe à se séparer de son épouse et cette situation familiale l'amène à faire ressurgir des souvenirs de son enfance à la campagne : l'exil du jeune enfant pendant la seconde guerre mondiale, l'expérience de sa mère avec la terreur politique, la querelle d'un couple en voie de divorce. Ces souvenirs personnels sont juxtaposés avec des séquences (ralenti) illustrant des rêves et d'autres plans tirés de films d'actualités (bombardement de Barcelone, révolution culturelle chinoise, adolescent guéri du bégaiement par hypnotisme). Ce mélange de présent, de souvenirs et d'images des médias transmet des interrogations sur les problèmes existentiels. Avec Margarita Terekhova, Oleg Yankovsky, Ignat Daniltsev."
  • "Andrei Tarkovsky takes a moving and personal turn with this striking meditation on life in Russia during the bleak days of WWII. As an homage to the innocence of childhood, it tells an enigmatictale that is both gripping and horrifying."
  • "Mirror is the celebrated Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky's most autobiographical work in which he reflects upon his own childhood and the destiny of the Russian people."
  • "A man in his forties is going to die and remembers his past. His childhood, his mother, the war, personal moments but things that also tell the story of all the Russian nation. The film takes place in three distinct time periods in Russia: 1930's pre-war, World War II, and post war."
  • "Een man overdenkt tijdens een zware zenuwinzinking zijn leven door middel van herinneringen aan zijn jeugd."
  • "SUMMARY: "The director mixes flashbacks, historical footage and original poetry to illustrate the reminiscences of a dying man about his childhood during World War II, adolescence, and a painful divorce in his family. The story interweaves reflections about Russian history and society." IMDB"
  • "Tarkovsky's looking glass is not merely cracked but shattered. Through the jagged, jumbled reflections of its shards, film dramatizes moments of Tarkovsky's childhood mixed with fragments of his adult life--a child's wartime exile, a mother's experience with political terror, the breakup of a marriage, life in a country home--all intermingled with slow-motion dream sequences and poetic chunks of stark newsreels."
  • "Tarkovsky's extraordinary autobiographical journey through children, dreams and adult life."
  • "The film is autobiographical: a mirror is held up to both Tarkovsky's childhood and to the destiny of the Russian people."
  • "The film is autobiographical: a mirror is held up to both Tarkovsky's childhood and to the destiny of the Russian people. DVD."
  • "Tarkovsky's looking glass is not merely cracked but shattered and we see the jagged, jumbled reflections of its shards, images of Tarkovsky's childhood mixed with fragments of his adult life--a child's wartime exile, a mother's experience with political terror, the breakup of a marriage, life in a country home--all intermingled with slow-motion dream sequences and poetic chunks of stark newsreels."
  • ""One of the world's most visionary, celebrated and influential filmmakers. Andrei Tarkovsky made just seven features before his tragically early death at the age of 54. Characterised by metaphysical and spiritual explorations of the human condition, each film is an artistic masterpiece of extraordinary visual beauty and stand as enduring classics of world cinema""
