Abstract: Let $T,T'$ be weak contractions (in the sense of Sz.-Nagy and Foias), $m,m'$ the minimal functions of their $C_0$ parts and let $d$ be the greatest common inner divisor of $m,m'$. It is proved that the space $I(T,T')$ of all operators intertwining $T,T'$ is reflexive if and only if the model operator $S(d)$ is reflexive. Here $S(d)$ means the compression of the unilateral shift onto the space $H^2\ominus dH^2$. In particular, in finite-dimensional spaces the space $I(T,T')$ is reflexive if and only if all roots of the greatest common divisor of minimal polynomials of $T,T'$ are simple. The paper is concluded by an example showing that quasisimilarity does not preserve hyperreflexivity of $I(T,T')$.
