The Sheltering Sky
Debra Winger and John Malkovich are Kit and Port Moresby, two American artists traveling through postwar Africa in this adaptation of Paul Bowles's novel. Having drifted apart, the couple seek to escape their alienation by exploring the unfamiliar -- but find much more than they bargained for. Director Bernardo Bertolucci and cinematographer Vittorio Storaro fabulously capture the forbidding beauty of the Saharan locations.
