Product Description

Special Edition DVD. India, the magic, the majesty...the tourists. This multi-award-winning comedy documentary from Alexander Snelling is a must for everyone who loves India. 10 tantric tourists, one misguided tantric guru... the film joins ten enthusiastic disciples on their debut trip to India, led by hilarious, larger-than-life but conflicted New York City tantric guru, Laurie Handlers. Featuring a millionairess, a psychic nurse, an aspiring model and a swinging scientist, this riotous road trip is a comedy of errors full of depth and soul, transporting viewers on a trip of a lifetime. Sunrises over temples, drunken night trains, sexual exercises on buses, elephant rides; this laugh-a-minute guerrilla documentary is a stunning spectacle of contradiction that takes "uplifting cinema" to another level.     This film may seem like a mocumentary but it is all real and shot in less than ten days in real time. This Special Edition DVD contains six DVD extras not available anywhere else including; a 25-minute "making-of" film, behind-the-scenes footage, tantric exercises as performed by the star of the film Laurie Handlers on set in India, the original trailer and alternative voice-over by screen legend Steven Berkoff (James Bond, Beverly Hills Cop, The Tourist). (Please note; this is a Region 0 NTSC DVD that will play in all European players.)


There's much to admire in Alexander Snelling's documentary about a perspiring gang of sex-starved westerners on a tantric tour of India. He clocks some genuine emotional flashpoints and shoots India with adoring vivacity. --The Guardian

A spiritual 'This Is Spinal Tap'. --LeCool Magazine

Funny, Colourful & Irreverent. What The Darjeeling Ltd should have been. --Jason Solomons. The Observer.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a trip, man 21 Jan 2011
The guru in this is so real, I love her. And the poor victims who trail after her...they're as funny as she is. I learnt things like rishi isometrics, and cannot WAIT to visit India now.

I don't usually bother writing reviews, but after seeing this film at Fort Lauderdale film festival, I feel duty bound to support this truly inspiring film. Amazing. I'm ordering them for all my friends.

The film gave a real view of India while showcasing an amazing woman and teacher. I met Laua Handlers who lead this group immediately after seeing the movie. She is brillant, insightful science based and compassionate.

Thought I was getting a behind the scenes look into tantric but all this is was a bus trip. Boring. Don't waste your money.
