If you thought adventure films in the style of Kim (1950) or Lawrence of Arabia (1962) were Technicolor-exclusive, think again. Because Theeb tells a coming-of-age tale set in the Hejaz desert (Saudi Arabia) and during WWI. As the world is modified by means of explosions and massacres and the power structures still seek new forms, little Theeb (Arab for “wolf”) lives with his brother Hussein in a Bedouin village to which a British officer and his guide arrive. Forced by the customs of his culture to not leave them to their fates, Hussein joins them to their destination, but the trip becomes more dangerous than they imagined, and changes their lives forever. Shot in breathtaking locations and with a majority of non-professional actors, Theeb is a remarkable debut, a film of adventure and survival unlike any other Bafici has experienced. LL
