A mirror and a fireplace are reflected. A naked woman enters the frame; stands up next to the fireplace ... We see her nude reflection in the mirror, standing off-camera, before she enters the camera's active zone. From our observation point, we see her walk forward, breaking the threshold of the camera's field of vision but still reflected in the mirror. In fact, there are two of her: one who stands in front of the camera (walking back and forth, disappearing and reappearing, standing around, doing nothing), the other who is reflected in the mirror. Shadows and movements. Suddenly, she abandons her position and comes so near to the camera that we see a blurred close-up of her breast. At one point, she positions herself so close to the mirror that her body blocks out its own mirror image. Mirroring, reflecting, another form of framing is indeed at stake.
