Fifth about The Seventh

Theeb

TheebTheeb: Naji Abu Nowar’s film is a quiet, old-fashioned coming-of-age adventure. While it doesn’t bring much that is new, the place, historical moment and culture portrayed raise the level of novelty and interest in this story. The cast (particularly Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat, who has a nice interaction with Hussein Salameh Al-Sweilhiyeen) is serviceable. Wolfgang Thaler’s camera captures nicely the locations (which, incidentally, are varied and great-looking). Jerry Lane’s score is eerie and a great fit for the images.
