A Journey from Childhood to Old Age in a Bathroom Mirror

The Mirror is a highly acclaimed and incredibly creative short film by Swiss directors Ramon and Pedro. It shows a journey through life in one take, with everything taking place in the reflection of a bathroom mirror.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video showing how it was made (hint: they used an invisible mirror rather than an invisible camera):

    I could write an essay on why that was good and well executed and why it works. I won’t, but damn I could.

    How? So cool!

    Cool, like the final scene of “A Space Odyssey”

    Very cool, sometimes you can see the camera ‘hands’ go a bit different then the mirrored ones though. But still, very well done!
