Cobras, Pot And Other Temptations

The exotic world of expatriate American writer Paul Bowles (The Sheltering Sky), artistic colleague of Beat poets and writers such as Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs, is brought to the screen in this beautifully photographed anthology based on three of his short stories.

Bowles introduces each story and narrates the first, Merkala Beach, about the grim friendship between two youths, one a drunkard and the other a pothead. In Call At Corazon, a newlywed couple journey up the Amazon, which sorely tests their already shaky marriage. Allal is the tale of a Moroccan boy who merges his soul with that of a cobra.

Each haunting, enigmatic tale captures the essence of Bowles' vision of humanity and his love of strange, colorful locales.
