You don’t love me!’
‘Yes, I do!’
‘I do too, but I’m gonna mace you in the face!’

Estranged broth­ers Fran­cis (Owen Wilson), Peter (Adrien Brody) and Jack (Jason Schwartz­man) reunite for a train trip across India. The sib­lings have not spoken in over a year, ever since their fath­er died. Fran­cis is recov­er­ing from a motor­cycle acci­dent, Peter can­not cope with his wife’s preg­nancy, and Jack can­not get over his ex-lover. The broth­ers fall into old pat­terns of beha­vi­or as Fran­cis reveals the real reas­on for the reunion: to visit their moth­er in a Him­alay­an con­vent.

Wes Anderson’s quirky com­edy-drama pays homage not only to the films of Jean Ren­oir, Louis Malle and Sat­jay­it Ray, but also to the stun­ning land­scape of Rajasthan. The film won the Little Golden Lion at the 2007 Venice Film Fest­iv­al.
