Kamran's rating of the film A Separation

Glass panels and doors visually imply the empty spaces created by communication barriers as ongoing rifts lead to further isolation. Everything about the inner suffering of a child listening to fighting parents is expressed in the girls' solemn looks at each other in the penultimate scene, looks that say "I know, I get it, I get you". 90/100—Amazing.
