The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

US 91m, Colour
Director: Wes Anderson; Cast: Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Waris Ahluwalia, Amara Karan, Barbet Schroeder, Anjelica Huston

The Darjeeling Limited is arguably Wes Anderson’s richest and arguably most mature film, combining beautiful cinematography and style with substance in its exploration of broken family relationships; the privileges and problems of wealth and status; love and relationships gone wrong; and significance of life and death. Although The Darjeeling Limited is in part a comedy, the film is reminiscent of Satyajit Ray’s Apu Trilogy, where humanity’s underlying beauty comes to light in some of the most trying of human circumstances. As with Anderson’s other films, music plays a central role in the film – deftly combining traditional, popular folk and classical compositions (Klaus Ming November 2010).
