Adventure, Drama, Thriller
In the Arabian desert during World War I, a young Bedouin boy tags along on a military mission for a British officer and soon finds himself at the mercy of a fierce bandit, a fortress full of Ottoman Turks, and the implacable desert itself, in Naji Abu Nowar’s low-key, highly observant adventure. The title character is played, winningly, by 13-year-old Jacir Eid, a first-time actor like almost everyone else in the cast. The desert, shot on location in Jordan, plays itself. Overtones of John Ford, Alexander Korda, and Sergio Leone abound. Director Nowar, a UK native, co-wrote the screenplay with producer Bassel Ghandour. Costarring Hassan Mutlag as the bandit, surely a cousin of Eli Wallach’s Tuco from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (100 min.).
