Bernardo Bertoluccis sumptuous adaptation of the best-selling Paul Bowles novel is a faithful re-telling of the classic story of three New Yorkers whose shallow lives are exposed on an arduous tour through North Africa.

Port and Kit Moresby (John Malkovich and Debra Winger) are American artists and self-styled travellers (not tourists) exploring Saharan Africa; but their 10-year marriage is threatened by the presence of boorish companion, George Tunner (Campbell Scott), who has designs on Kit. Soon the brooding, self-assured Port grows ill, and Kit finds herself alone in a strange, hostile land.

Bertolucci and director of photography, Vittorio Storaro, fabulously capture the forbidding beauty of the Saharan locations, while the haunting score by Ryuichi Sakamoto underpins the films powerful emotional force.

This is a Region 4 disc, the local region for Australia.

Beautifully shot in stunning Sahara setting. I found this film watchable but not enjoyable. Like the marriage between the two characters in the film, there seemed to be something lacking. The odd narrator at the beginning and end of the film also gave me the feeling that it might have been better to put it on the stage rather than on film. I think the only question that the film raised for me was why?
