English Description:

The Sheltering Sky is a 1990 British-Italian drama film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci starring Debra Winger and John Malkovich. The film is based on the 1949 novel of the same name by Paul Bowles (who appears in a cameo role) about a couple who journey to northern Africa in the hopes of rekindling their marriage but soon fall prey to the dangers that surround them. 

Three Americans from New York arrive in Oran (Algeria) in 1947. Port Moresby and his wife Kit are accompanied by their friend George Tunner on a trip that will take them deep into the Sahara Desert. Tunner observes, "We're probably the first tourists they've had since the war," to which Kit replies "We're not tourists. We're travelers." While Tunner plans to return home in a few weeks, Port and Kit plan on staying for a year or two.

While awaiting transport to a hotel, the group meets a pair of English travelers, Mrs. Lyle, a travel writer, and Eric, her adult son. Eric's mother keeps him constantly short of money so he is always asking for credit and loans. After arriving at the hotel, they sit in the hotel bar and are observed by an older man sitting alone at a table.

Port invites Kit to accompany him for a walk in the city. After she refuses and rebuffs his romantic advances, Port angrily leaves. During his walk he meets a pimp who introduces him to a prostitute in a Berber encampment. The two have sex and the prostitute attempts to steal his wallet. Port quickly leaves and is chased from the camp by a mob.


Hungarian Summary:

A második világháborút követő években a zenész Port és írónő felesége, Kit Észak-Afrikába utazik. A sivatagi napfénytől, a titokzatos labirintusoktól, az idegen világ érzésétől megmámorosodva vetik magukat az egzotikus világba. Ám az utazás nem azt hozza számukra, amit vártak, kapcsolatuk egyhangúságán az idegen világban szerzett élmények sem segíthetnek már. Egyre nyugtalanabbá és elégedetlenebbé válnak magukkal és egymással szemben is.
