About meMy user name Zerkalo is borrowed from the mesmerizing film by Andreï Tarkovsky (Mosfilm, 1974).

I'm a bibliophile with strong affection to classical music and the fine arts, as well as a film enthousiast with particular interests in selected arthouse cinema and Zeitgeist-documentaries.
This virtual library includes all books which I have read or at least I possess. What films are concerned, I've only listed those I consider bearing my interest over a longer period or those I admire; part of the scripts are linked to literature.
