Movie: Zerkalo

Biography, Drama | Andrei Tarkovsky | Soviet Union | 1975 | IMDB

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…

At times something happens and I stop dreaming of the house and the pine trees of my childhood around it. Then I get depressed. And I can’t wait to see this dream in which I’ll be a child again and feel happy again, because everything will still be ahead, everything will be possible…

I say full of dreamy and mysterious scenes, poetic, artistically made, mysterious as a whole. Deliberately confusing. Require multiple viewing. Rather dark and depressing.
