Theeb (2014)

The poem at the beginning of the film holds such importance when it comes to the themes of the film. We notice that throughout the film, Theeb will go through the verses of the poem. What Theeb does to the challenges he faces is what the audience are curious about. This is the first time watching a Jordanian film. I have seen my fair share of Arabic films, but never something serious or passionate such as Theeb. I am glad I watched this film because of the complexity it holds within. Just as the poem says, it applies to this film, "He who swims the Red Sea cannot know it's true depth. And not just any man Theeb, can reach the seabed my son"
