Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Fans of romantic movies will find much to enjoy here. Two riveting lead actors, Rahadian and Septrias, draw the audience into their world so fully that even in fantasy scenes portraying the two as star-crossed lovers from a 12th century fiction, our connection with them and their plight never wavers. Layla Majnun is a sweeping romance that feels contemporary and also timeless. Stunning capital city Baku is a character in this drama, skillfully depicted by director Monty Tiwa. He uses its beauty and dignity, its age and modernity, to help the audience understand a different culture but also to underscore the universality of love.
