Directed by visionary filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci (Last Tango In Paris, Stealing Beauty, The Last Emperor) and based upon the celebrated, existential novel by cult writer Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky stars Debra Winger (An Officer And A Gentleman, Terms Of Endearment), John Malkovich (Burn After Reading, Dangerous Liaisons), Campbell Scott (Roger Dodger, The Spanish Prisoner) and Timothy Spall (The Last Samurai, Secrets And Lies) in an unforgettable, dangerous and erotic journey across North Africa and into the dark depths of the human soul. Pseudo-bohemian American couple Port And Kit Moresby believe that a tourist is someone who thinks about home as soon as they arrive somewhere, whereas a true traveller never knows when they’ll return. In an attempt to spice up their marriage they venture aimlessly across the beautiful but hazardous landscape of North Africa in search of new experiences. But as they journey deeper into the Sahara desert, their indulgent dreams slowly evolve into a sinister nightmare of insanity and death.
