The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

Synopsis The Darjeeling Limited (From RottenTomatoes) :

Wes Anderson, the creator of RUSHMORE and THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, offers another quirky, melancholic riff on familial ties and father issues in THE DARJEELING LIMITED. Francis (Owen Wilson) has invited his brothers, Jack (Jason Schwartzman) and Peter (Adrien Brody), to join him on a train trip for a spiritual quest through India. The brothers have been estranged since their father’s sudden death, and each is now embroiled in his own personal drama. Jack is being toyed with by his two-timing girlfriend, Peter’s wife is about to give birth, and Francis recently survived a car crash that nearly killed him. As the train chugs its way across India, the brothers try to reconnect, but mainly end up arguing and sharing pharmaceuticals. Francis admits that the real reason he lured them there is because he wants them to visit their mother (Anjelica Huston), who is living in a convent in the Himalayas. Peter and Jack are none too pleased with this plan, and immediately want to go home. The trip hits another snag when they are kicked off the train for a series of offenses. Stranded with their mountain of matching luggage, Peter and Jack are now insistent upon leaving. However, they suddenly find themselves brought together by an deadly accident involving some Indian children. The tragedy unites them, and they decide to continue on to their mother. Their visit with her proves revelatory, and they begin their journey homeward free of both their literal and metaphorical baggage. The film bears all of Anderson’s trademark touches–stilted comedic dialogue, blunted emotions, and bizarre set pieces that pay subtle homage to the 1970s. Though the film is a bit quieter and less madcap than his previous work, it is still sure to delight his many fans.

Reviews The Darjeeling Limited :

เป็นหนังที่ได้รสชาติแปลกๆ ไม่สามารถหาดูได้จากที่ไหน
ดำเนินเรื่องเกี่ยวพันกับรถไฟและการเดินทางอยู่ตลอด
ที่สำคัญ ถ่ายทำทั้งหมดในอินเดียจริงๆ
ทำให้ได้เห็นอะไรหลายๆอย่างในอินเดีย ที่ต่อให้ดูสารคดี ก็คงไม่มีโอกาสเห็น
เพราะมันไม่ใช่สิ่งที่สำคัญหรือที่รู้จัก
แต่เป็นคล้ายๆกัน จุดเล็กๆ culture or attitude ของคนอินเดีย
(ถึงแม้ว่าอาจจะไม่จริงบ้าง เช่น คนอินเดีย local ในเรื่องหลายๆคน พูด english ได้สำเนียง american มากๆ)
ส่วนเพลงประกอบหลายๆเพลง เป็นเพลงยุคเก่าของนักดนตรีชาวอินเดีย
