The Darjeeling Limited
(USA, 2007, 90 minutes)
Three brothers estranged since their father's funeral come together for a cross-India train trip meant to bring them together. Whimsical, melancholy comedy-melodrama of family matters that brings nothing new to its director's usual candy-coloured, off-kilter universe but refines it enjoyably.
