The creative team behind 1987's nine-time Oscar-winning "The Last Emperor" -- director Bernardo Bertolucci, producer Jeremy Thomas and screenwriter Mark Peloe -- reunite for this fascinating film starring Academy Award-nominees Debra Winger ("Shadowlands," "Terms of Endearment") and John Malkovich ("In the Line of Fire," "Dangerous Liaisons"), and rising star Campbell Scott ("Singles"). Based on the classic novel by Paul Bowles, this visually stunning, sensual film, rich in setting and storytelling, chronicles the relationships among three travelers through post-war North Africa.
