Based on the acclaimed 1949 novel by Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci (1900, The Last Emperor) won a BAFTA for Best Cinematography. Port Moresby (John Malkovich) and his wife Kit (Debra Winger) arrive in North Africa in 1947. The sophisticated couple, married for ten years, are unable to live together despite their love for one another, and they've come to the African desert in search of renewal and personal inspiration. Port, a musician who has not worked for a year, is uncertain of where he and his wife are going. Kit is weary of the constant traveling but continues to hope that by accompanying her husband, he will once again belong to her.
