Movie Info

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 passed away. 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.

  • What of the characters? Well, there aren't any, really.

    March 12, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Wes Anderson transports his arch, pristine, melancholic sensibility to India, where three estranged brothers meet after their father's death and hop a train in a quixotic attempt to heal their spiritual wounds.

  • The film as a whole operates in Mr. Anderson's patented, semi-precious zone of antic and droll. It's not as if the filmmaker has gone off the rails. He's just not solidly on them.

    March 12, 2014
  • Apart from having thus created the first road-picture homework assignment, Anderson isn't breaking new ground here. But he and his actors appear to be having a larkish good time.

  • A Wes Anderson film is like a snow globe: it's hermetically sealed, precious, and pointless.

  • This is India as in one of those highly coloured paintings of a Hindu god. It's absolutely gorgeous but every so often the train stops and we go outside, into the dusty yellow plains of Rajasthan, where reality is more present.

    A lot better than expected! Another brilliant film by Wes Anderson. I loved everything about it especially Adrien Brody.

    Quirky, yet touching film about brothers bonding. What stands out is the beautiful and rich setting of the Indian country side. Not Wes Anderson's best movie but it is still good.

    The Darjeeling Limited is one of Wes Andersons most mature films, but still has all the beautiful imagery, funny yet touching writing, and brilliant performances we could've hoped for. Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzmen all give great performances, playing three brothers with a love-hate relationship on a train journey together. This relationship is the heart of the film, but also is able to show off the charming dynamic between the three. It may lack the originality and wit of some of Andersons previous efforts, but it was brilliant nonetheless. The Darjeeling Limited was not a film, but an experience. As the credits rolled I found a big smile on my face, something Wes Anderson has achieved time and time again.

    Wes Anderson's uneven, good-natured The Darjeeling Limited benefits from a charismatic cast and entertains despite its flaws.
