This short film titled 'Le Miroir,' is a cleverly executed approach to approaching biographical time lapse.

Shot as a life-long documentation of a man looking in the bathroom mirror, the short film takes the viewer through the many stages of life, and identifies each age with understated cues, like shaving and losing a tooth. From toddler to father to old man, the audience watches as the main character seamlessly grows older in small ways, which always comes across as believable. Incredibly well-cast and using only one set to tell a very long story, this is an impressive piece which highlights the storytelling abilities of directors Antoine Tinguely and Laurent Fauchère.

This film features absolutely no words, yet still manages to get across a meaningful narrative.
