The Mirror (1997) Iranian

Director: Jafar Panahi;
FiC Rating: 5/5

  1. Panahi’s sophomore very brilliantly blurs the line between reality and fiction, though a simple plot line, where a kid tries to reach back home from school with its visuo spatial memory traces.
  2. Mina Mohammadkhani’s modest performance as Baharan and then herself is so much convincieng and rightly orchestrated by the director that effortlessly makes it’s viewer believable.
  3. ‘Fly on the wall’ technique uplifts the wonder of meta cinema approach chose to narrate this simple yet beautiful plot.
