A Hamlet-like Tale, 10 March 2003
Author: astutato from New York, USA

Hamoun, a.k.a. "The Desert," is a superior film that depicts the life of Hamid Hamoun - an educated, middle class man whose wife wishes to divorce him. The movie delves deep into this character's mind with constant dream sequences in which Hamid's contemplations flash before his eyes. Ultimately, this is an excellent psychological and emotional tale of one man's struggle against an onslaught of treachery and deceit.
