In the beginning of the Twentieth Century, in Arabia, Emir Nesib of Hobeika defeats Sultan Amar of Salma after years of war between their tribes and they make a peace treaty creating "The Yellow Belt", a large no man's land that would separate their lands and would not belong to neither of them. Further, Nesib demands the sons of Amar, Saleh and Auda, to be raised together with his children Tarik and Leyla by him in Hobeika as a guarantee of their agreement. Fifteen years later, representatives of the Texas Oil find oil in the Yellow Belt and the modern and liberal Emir Nesib sees the opportunity to improve and modernize the life of his tribe, building hospitals and schools, and the American Company begins the exploitation of the oil field, violating the peace pact.

I am not a fan of this genre but if you are I'm am sure you will love this. To me it was just a little boring. I say B-
"I'll be richer then the King of England." After years of war Emir Nesib (Banderas) defeats Sultan Amar (Strong). They form a treaty saying that the desert strip that separated them will be a no man's land belonging to no one and as a guarantee Nesib takes Amar's two sons to raise them as his own. When a Texas oil man shows up and promises Nesib riches beyond his dreams he jumps at the chance but Amar does not agree. When Nesib sons one of Amar's sons to make a treaty it is not taken well and the son must now pick sides with his father or stay with the woman he loves. I will again open with a disclaimer...this is not my kind of movie. The acting is OK and the movie itself is not bad but to me movies like this are just a little too long and drawn out to really get into. If you are a fan of movies like Lawrence Of Arabia and stuff like that you will probably really enjoy this. To me it was OK but kind of boring, but again this isn't my kind of movie. Overall, if you are a fan of this genre you will most likely really enjoy this. I give it a B-.
