The legendary Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky’s Mirror is a film that showcases of how cinematography can be used to tell the story and the emotions of the characters. This is some of the best screenshots from the film.

“A film in cinema is what in theatre would be realism—and vice versa.
In cinema—as in life—the text, the words, are refracted in everything
apart from the words themselves. The words mean nothing—
words are water.” – Andrei Tarkovsky
