A woman's dangerous and erotic journey beneath….

Are you tourist or traveler? Kit (Debra Winger) and Port Moresby (John Malkovich) find the distinction important. A tourist wants comforts of home. A traveler seeks adventure. Kit and Port are travelers, drawn by desire and destiny to the Sahara in an attempt to recapture the love they once shared.

Bernardo Bertolucci, the Academy Award-winning director behind such provocative films as Last Tango in Paris and The Last Emperor, delves into the hearts and mind's intimate recesses in The Sheltering Sky, from Paul Bowles' haunting book. Powerful performances fuse with Vittorio Storaro's cinematography (New York Film Crits Award) and the Ryuichi Sakamoto/Richard Horowitz score (Los Angeles Film Critics and Golden Globe Awards) for a rich, daring experience evoking the traveler in us all.
