  • The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles

    I recommend both the film and the book. The book is better.It is a story based on the authors experience living in Morocco and traveling throughout the Sahara and into Sub-Sahara Africa in the 1940's. It deals with the Wests perception of North Africa as oreintal and exotic.Vey good stuff.

    In the film,Amina Annabi plays the role of Marhnia. Debra Winger and John Malkovich also stars as leading roles of Kit and Porter.

      Old news is only to old ears. Not everyone has heard of this book and film. By your line of reasoning the world would never have read Shakespeare!

        Aisha, both book and film were nice... but very depressing, no ? I really liked Debra Winger though.

          It was in a nostalgic way.

                Malkovich is very talented.
                I felt his portrayal of Port was one of the highlights of Bertoluccis film. Sakamotos score was excellent too.
                The book indeed was better, the second half of the film dragged in comparisson to the first.
                Would be interesting to see some of Bowles other novels put on the big screen ~ Let it Come Down would be interesting although The Spiders House is a better book.
