Bernardo Bertolucci and Vittorio Storaro are an inseparable pair - so we really should mention the work of Storaro. He had already shown on a few occasions an ability to create unified pictorial epics from barely compatible images, but here he does something completely different. The warm, dusty colours of the The Sheltering Sky glitter on the screen. Yet there's even more to it than that - Storaro's composition even influences how high the sun rises in individual scenes. This is significant, as the cinematographer builds largely on natural images in this film. The spectacles contained within The Sheltering Sky also reflect human conditions. The heat, the dust, and the changes in the light mirror the emotional state of our heroes. Or is it the other way around?
