Andrei Tarkovsky: The Mirror (1975)

Hoezo in Kino

The Mirror (Zerkalo) is Tarkovsky’s most ambitious work and that’s saying something; a kaleidoscopic mixture of historical footage, childhood memories, dreamlike images and monochrome cinematic pondering on the motherland’s history fight for your attention. This film proves to be his most divisive but if anyone has the visual skill and eye for beauty, it’s the master himself. So leave narrative reason in the hallway and enjoy this beautiful collage of a film in all its splendor.

Not since Sergei Eisenstein laid the ironclad foundation for the medium itself has Mother Russia produced a cinematic force greater than writer/director Andrei Tarkovsky. His uniquely paced and visually astounding features are layered like Dostoyevsky tomes while his films intersperse grand universal themes with the profoundly personal. Tarkovsky described his approach to filmmaking as “sculpting in time” as he brought to the screen a body of work with a trancelike quality that is often imitated yet never equaled. His oeuvre remains as elusive to interpretation today as it must have been to the filmgoers staggering out of the cinema’s in the ’60’s and ’70’s. Beautifully restored and back in cinema, KINO will screen six of his masterpieces starting September 14th. In Russian with English subtitles.
