A camera takes the picture as things are. It shows what it sees..the truth
“If you want to known the truth, you must be absolutely like a mirror: silent, peaceful, immobile, impartial, with out prefrences and in a state of total receptivity…then you will be able to see many things which are there, many things you are not aware of”
Eventually a battle in everyone’s life to live the truth…just like a camera sees it, a photograph shows things we cannot see when we are standing there as a camera is a mirror, it just refelects, I want to be more like that…
In the book “My life in film” by Mr Bergman, he asks a question in two of his films Hour of the wolf and From the life of Marionettes, “when the mirror is broken, but what do the fragments reflect?”
I think in the end when the mirror shatters it reflects layers of truth, I would like to say that but because if Mr Bergman says “I still dont have a good answer.”, I can never have the right one.
