Storyline

A year after the accidental death of their father, three brothers -- each suffering from depression - meet for a train trip across India. Francis, the eldest, has organized it. The brothers argue, sulk, resent each other, and fight. The youngest, Jack, estranged from his girlfriend, is attracted to one of the train's attendants. Peter has left his pregnant wife at home, and he buys a venomous snake. After a few days, Francis discloses their surprising and disconcerting destination. Amid foreign surroundings, can the brothers sort out their differences? A funeral, a meditation, a hilltop ritual, and the Bengal Lancer figure in the reconciliation.

Trivia

Adrien Brody remarked that during the river scene, Wes Anderson's instructions were the exact opposite of what he'd intended to do. See more »

Goofs

The first time the brothers are in the dining car, the camera cuts between Francis and Peter several times. In the shots of Francis, the back of Peter's head is visible, with his hands on his temples. When the camera faces him, his hands are gone. It happens too fast for him to move his hands up and down.

Wonderful forgotten gem
4 January 2020 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

A lovely electrifying journey of 3 friends that is beautifully done, incredible acting and artsy style to everything! Wes Anderson has such a magic touch of glorious vision; masterful cinema unlike anything else! Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, and Jason Shcwartsman are captivating probably their best roles. Also I absolutely love the line "Can we agree to that?".
