"The Sheltering Sky"
Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci
John Malkovich and
Debra Winger star as an unfortunate pair of American tourists adrift in the
deserts of North Africa. Bernardo Bertolucci brings this Paul Bowles novel
to the screen and tries his best to capture in images, the words and
intentions of the author. Vincent Canby called this "Bertolucci's most
seductive, most hypnotic movie." With Campbell Scott, Jill Bennett, Timothy
Spall and Eric Vu-An. English.
