Audience Reviews for Leila

  • Jul 02, 2013
    Another winner from the Iranian cinema. I was struck by recent comments by an expert that most Iranians do not see their art house films and that most of their films are rubbish. Thank goodness this is the sort of film that the rest of the world associates with the country.

    The tragedy of a love torn apart by each partner's overeagerness to please the other
