OCCLUSION: When an object in the foreground temporarily obscures an object in the background; especially if the FG object is smaller than the BG object.

PARALLAX: During camera movement, objects closer to the lens appear to move at a faster rate of speed than objects farther from the lens, even though the rate of speed is the same.

Both of these intentional cinematic phenomenons greatly assist in creating the illusion of depth on a two-dimensional medium (the movie screen).
