This review is from: The Darjeeling Limited [DVD]  (DVD)
It beggars belief how this movie has got only 3 and a 1/2 stars from other people. ...But I am not other people. This movie is about relationships. It follows the fragile and volatile relationships of three materially privileged brothers (they were raised in a disfunctional family) as they come together to partake in a 'spiritual' journey. It is surely an acquired taste. But how refreshing for those who tire of the way most movies these days seem to be crammed with computer animation and effects and nauseatingly fast action. The soundtrack works well, with an eclectic, bohemian mix of classical, and mostly sixties pop/rock (such as 'Where Do You Go To My Lovely' by Peter Sarstedt, who was himself raised in Darjeeling with several other brothers). I will not attempt yet another long account and critique of the story. The more complimentary reviews here accomplish that more than competently. But if you like the idea of a quirky, often touching comedy, set against the colourful backdrop of old-world India, this could be for you.
