Bizarre, bewildering, depressing, tedious, terrible acting, but beautiful scenery and some very, very strange and interesting cultural scenes and music. Apparently, you need to read the book first so you can understand it. Definitely an adult film (sex/nudity).

the finest movie ever created!!! the genius director bernardo bertolucci brings the brilliant novel by paul bowles to spectacular life across north africa and the sahara desert, while debra winger, john malkovich, and campbell scott demonstrate with subtlety and nuance the difference between 'tourists' and 'travelers.' Timothy Spall is unforgettable.

Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well, yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.
