At least once in our life, we all wanted to relive a day in a different way, to try to return to the same place and start all over from there: do a different thing, say a different thing, and, eventually, have a different outcome. Or just live it up, without taking any responsibility for our actions, knowing that today is but a draft that can be rewritten tomorrow.
Among the films that tell us about the time loop adventures, we can single out a separate category of movies where the characters, often against their will, relive the same moments of their life over and over again. The hallmark of this series was the movie "Groundhog Day". It is unlikely to find a single person in our country aged up to 60 who hasn't heard of it or watched it. Still, only few know that one of the founders of this subgenre is our compatriot Svyatoslav Rubas. In 1984, he published the novel "Mirror for a Hero", which Vladimir Hotinenko used as the basis for his movie of the same name in 1987.
