Different but absolutely fantastic,
This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums [DVD]  (DVD)
Royal Tenenbaum is about a story of a man trying to reconcile with his family whom he had left behind. He was once a succesful lawyer and then left with no money and had to return back to his own home as he has no where as to go. The story takes you to each individual tenenbaum and engages you with their lives and personality and the dynamics that exists between them all.
I can see how some people may find it tedious as it is definitely not your bog standard Hollywood film. I find it really clever, well narrated and the characters/actors and actresses played really well. (my fav character is that Indian man who follows Royal everywhere!!) There's always something new and subtle which I seemed to find everytime I watched the film again.
Perhaps it won't appeal to most, but I definitely give it a 5 stars.
