Writing on film in his essay 'Third Meaning' and about the photography in 'Camera Lucida', Roland Barthes used the same research categories that function in analogous structure. He treats chosen photograms and photographies as a prism that evokes the substance of what is striking for him, and thus points to the way of seeing that allows us to open up to the state of mind that signals readiness for experience. In the same time Barthes criticizes the means of presentation in respect to the conditions and limitations these means impose on the viewers' possibility to adopt the image. The author argues that these two works by Barthes contsitute a line - both are just the different phases of the same theoretical journey. As a consequence - as he puts - Barthes choses the photographic image and rejects the cinematic one. But the analysis of the causes of such volte shows us that it was not the only way to solve the problem put by Barthes. Through analysis of a fragment of Andrei Tarkovski's 'Mirror' (Zerkalo) and using director's theory of film image, the author suggests the alternative way of thinking.
