The Sheltering Sky

Description
The film explores the events of American artists Porte and Kate Moresby (John Malkovich and Debra Winger), who are still having a new experience in their lives. The duo are fully looking for new experiences that can make sense of their relationship during that time in their lives. It seems that things will turn completely when they both drift into the void in North Africa after the war.

The book is so complete, so deep and so self-contained that it shuts the movie out. Bertolucci shows us the outsides and the surfaces, and a person seeing this movie without having read the book might ask what it is about.

Soul searching is rarely a thrill a minute but it's rarely as tedious as this. ...Oscar-bait it may be, but "The Sheltering Sky" is more deserving of the First Annual Chicken Little Award.

Brimming with obscure meaning and devoid of drive and fervor, the film dries up in that symbolic desert sun, the victim of its own pretensions and a casualty of trying to film something best suited to the realm of cult literature.

Bertolucci's grand desert epic gets stuck in the sand right at the start.

As you'd expect, it's a big, handsome film, rich and strange in psychological depths and eroticism. Malkovich and Winger play woundingly well.

A disappointingly reductive adaptation of Paul Bowles's first novel.
