Item Details

Having not spoken to each other in a year, three American brothers set off on a train voyage across India with a plan to find themselves and bond with each other. The brothers wanted to regain their friendship of each other. Their "spiritual quest," however, veers rapidly off-course -- thanks in part to over-the-counter pain killers, Indian cough syrup, and pepper spray. Eventually the three find themselves stranded alone in the middle of the desert with eleven suitcases, a printer, and a laminating machine. From this point forward, an unplanned journey begins.

Thought it´s a funny movie but no...about soul searching and dealing with past in very boring way. Very pointless movie.

I've been watching every Wes Anderson film and this is definitely one of his best. It mixes the strange scenery and characters with inspiring moments. There is an unspoken scene that took me completely by surprise and just blew me away. If you're not familiar with Wes Anderson, give this one a chance. It's got his funny moments, but it is also very profound.

I must be the only person that bought this movie and hated it!!!! REALLY!! you all liked it?! Huh!?!?

Had moments where I was very entertained and moments where I was bored. Great cast. I guess what you could say more than anything is that it was original. Like a collection of awkward family moments caught on film in pretty foreign settings. Didn't love it, but I liked it. Quirky.

Slipped between the pages of this quirky mild-mannered film are the major themes of loss, grief, family relationships, love relationships and finally, healing.

Three brothers gather to reconnect via a shared spiritual tour of India.

Each copes with loss in his own way; through taking on the role of a parent, through coveting and using possessions of the parent who has died, through passionate encounters.

The critic in me says it's not Wes Anderson's best, but I still inexplicably love it.

I think I've seen it 3 times, immensely rewatchable. Overall I'd put it just above Life Aquatic, below the rest.

Also, The soundtrack is amazing - made The Kinks - "Lola vs Powerman and the Moneygoround" one of my favourite albums.

hard to watch the available copy. The premise is odd but it is still a farce.

I like this movie quite a bit. Very good story. I recommend playing the short (part1) before the movie because it makes a joke in the movie make more sense.

By turns absurd, fascinating, hilarious, compelling, and deeply felt. A great film.
