Filming took three months. It was filmed in South Africa and Tunisia. The original director fell ill at the very beginning of filming and his role was taken by Hood. A miniseries were made at the same time this time as well (In Desert and Wilderness (2001 TV series)). The film was said to be more modern, notably in its depiction of intercultural relationships. Although it's not that close to the book, it still enjoyed a considerable success.
