Ever since reading, John Keats' 'Ode to Melancholy', I have been interested in the dualities that exist within the laws of nature, especially the opposing yet obligated unity of 'life' and 'death'. The two extremities of human kind's existence, that individually, have their own inordinate contradictions. Although, at times, this duality is the least liked topic of discussion, it is the greatest process that defies any and all concepts and philosophies. Duality will be represented in 'Mirror' between the two bodies that are actually the same person. One of them will represent Life and the other Death. It is a mystery to what has really transpired in the film but it is apparent that Life has discovered Death and her emotions are troubling. Perhaps, she is the one who has killed Death but has forgotten. Perhaps, this is a cyclical process that Life continues to experience. Life and Death are a cyclical process that may never cease to exist and it is implied that this scene is a recurrent event between the two characters. Interpretation is left in the hands of the individual audience member. However, I hope the film gears them in at least similar directions.
