The reflection of intense laser pulses consisting only of several light field cycles from nonlinear, isotropic and transparent dielectric media is theoretically investigated. It is shown, that the spectrum of the reflected pulse is enriched by odd harmonics and at close linear refraction indices of bordering media the duration of the reflected pulse can become less significant than the duration of incident pulse. It is shown, that the intense refracted wave has a strongly asymmetrically broadened spectrum in nonlinear medium.
