I watched the Mirror based on a positive review on a podcast called Filmspotting. I don't know what they were on when they watched it, because it is one of the worst movies that I have ever seen.
A little girl of about seven is at the front of a school in a city in Iran. She is wearing the traditional head dress and apparently waiting for her mother to pick her up and take her home. After waiting for a while, she becomes impatient and walks to phone booth to make a call. No one answers, and a man on a scooter takes her to a bus stop. She gets on, and the fellow passengers pretty much ignore her and carry on their mundane conversations as a radio in the background announces the score of a soccer match between Iran and South Korea. About 1/2 way through, the kid says that she does not want to act anymore, and we see the film crew. She wanders through the most incredible traffic, as the cars and bikes just crawl along at a snail's pace. I don't have any idea what the title means but The Mirror is absolutely pointless.
