Movie Rating:

Plot

Hussein and his little brother Theeb are members of a Bedouin family of pilgrim guides. One night a British army officer visits their camp and asks them to escort him on a journey to Mecca. They start their journey gently and eventually a group of bandits join the party.

Thoughts

The only Jordanian movie ever nominated in Oscar for the Best foreign language category. A truly memorable debut feature for Nail Abu Nowar that balances revenge and survival dish perfectly. The desert landscape of Jordan and surprising music make the plot very effective from the beginning. Child actor, Jacir Eid-Al-Hwietat nails down the leading character of Theeb with his innocence look. Overall, it offers everything a non traditional western adventure movie demands and will not disappoint you in any manner.
