apexa's rating of the film Leila

'Hamoun' works as a great companion piece to 'Leila'. Both use cinematic devices pronounce the subjective & to establish the lead character's POV. Both deal with the breakdown of a marriage - Hamoun being largely dysfunctional due to inward forces and Leila being largely functional due to outward forces. Both are titled to show who is the chief narrator with the former being the husband & the latter being the woman.
