This article discusses the Netflix film Mirror, Mirror (2022), including the premise, release date, cast, and trailer.

Mirror, Mirror (Original Spanish title: Espejo, Espejo), not to be confused with the 2012 fairy tale starring Julia Roberts, is coming to Netflix next week. The comedy had its theatrical release in Spain back in May, and despite its title, it has nothing to do with Snow White. It does try to tackle some relevant social issues in the form of showing us a bunch of people talking to themselves in their reflection. 

Mirror, Mirror (2022) premise

Courtesy of Netflix: “Employees at a cosmetics firm grapple with their respective desires by arguing with themselves in the mirror, ahead of their company’s anniversary party.” 

IMDB gives us a more detailed synopsis: “4 staffers at a cosmetics firm in its 50th year: the marketing director who is almost as old himself, a 25-year-old ambitious female assistant, her sister being pushed to “come out,” and an insecure chubby 40-year-old administrator.”

Our opinion of the premise

It seems to be relying on an absurdist comedy model to tell its story. Not only are these people talking to themselves, but their reflections seem to be talking back. I wonder if there’s an element of the supernatural involved? Do our reflections know us better than we know ourselves? 

Mirror, Mirror (2022) release date

The film will be released on Netflix on the 16th of September 2022.

The cast

Here is the main cast:

  • Malena Alterio
  • Santi Millán
  • Natalia de Molina
  • Verónica Forqué

The production team 

Here is the team behind it all:

  • Marc Crehuet, writer and director
  • Daniel Padró, associate producer
  • Joaquín Padró, executive producer
  • Mar Targarona, executive producer

Is there a trailer? 

There sure is! Check it out below:

The film might be taking a novel approach to issues like identity, sexuality and societal pressure. The trailer promises a journey into the absurd inner thoughts and struggles these characters face. Having never seen Marc Crehuet’s work before, I’m looking forward to streaming this one.
