Mirror ★★★★½

My first Tarkovsky film, and I’m glad it was. 

This film isn’t really about death, it’s more so about life, as we watch the developing of a child as he is put through one situation after another. Mirror is a film about growth, and upon seeing the contrasting scenes, from black and white in to colour, we understand that this man’s life is flashing before his own eyes, and he drifts closer and closer to his inevitable fate.  
I’m truly excited to see the rest of this mans filmography.
