The Sheltering Sky

138 minutes 1990 6.7

An American couple and a friend of theirs travel to Algeria to embark on a long trek through the Sahara desert. The couple, Port (John Malkovich) and Kit (Debra Winger), want a life-changing experience, while their friend just sees himself as a regular curious tourist. But the journey is far from what some of them had expected.

With The Sheltering Sky, Bernardo Bertolucci's first film since the award-winning The Last Emperor, and a lukewarm adventure drama without equal.
