The film begins just gorgeous — bill Murray runs on the station, swinging the bags, but suddenly ahead Adrien Brody. It and jumps in the car while Murray remains on the platform with a sad gaze follows the departing train. It may seem that is directing the banter. what we used to see bill on first, it's time to make way for fresh blood, but the salt jokes are still is found. The film tells the story of the three brothers, who sat on the train going through the whole India to see the mother, in order to reunite the entire family after his father's death. If you think about it, it in Indian movies and take based on the search of "who is who's brother, who who the matchmaker", and then all chewed. Double trolling.

We see three brother performance Owen Wilson, Adrian Brody and Jason Schwartzman, which so the age of have to be wise, but in fact, they all those children who meet each other schoolyard conflicts. Have one head bandaged, second sighing ex-wife, the third bother about the future of the child. And not to say that they are particularly glad of the company of each other, on the contrary, almost not open saying "I Have a return ticket", all their relationship is kept only by the insistence of his older brother. According to the course of the story becomes known — mother arrived at the funeral of his father, and brothers have been able to continue living, letting go of the memory of the father. So here, by wrangling and "everyone on the wave" they go to train to Darjeeling to visit his mother.

There is a possibility that unlike the previous early works of Wes Anderson this can seem quite boring, funny, not save the situation. In fact, same tragicomedy, but more focused on the soul-searching. Brother with a bandaged head talks about the spiritual enlightenment that after the incident with him, he a lot of rethinking. But a really strong moment occurs at the middle of the film, when the brothers came down from the train, hobble walk and suddenly see the three boys, caught in the rapid flow of the river. One they cannot save, and is a kind of reflection in the side of the main characters. If a couple of days ago, they were not ready to see each other, now, not so simple. The movie is in contrast types of India is trying to convey to us as it is important to stop the self-pity and to be able to let go of the past.

It's funny that the film has a short spin-off of "Hotel "Chevalier", where one of the brothers waiting for his ex-girlfriend. In apart from context looks generally strange and sense to themselves not be held. That for my personal claim to "Train on Assam" — I can point to the obsession with Anderson on the theme of fragmented families, which is not make a chew. All like that give me in the hands of the camera, and I'm going to make films about how the kid is shy of telling them to crush. Interestingly, many critics called the Director "a hostage of his style" that gave Wes a kind of trigger in development.

Three brothers. Their branches relations gradually began to end up having the grievance of the death of his father. Something went wrong so after the funeral, which a couple of hours brought young people together, and also and the mother does not feel the need to arrive at this is sad. Always lost in these situations when there seems to be and resentment begins to comprehend supratimas somewhere in the depths of the soul, but and it seems to be absolutely not to do this now. After that fateful day everybody was to live their life situation further, while this is the Trinity is not have teamed up again.

The initiative in their hands took the elder brother Francis in the performance of Owen Wilson, Brooks your skin so easy times, as he would like. And one day something suddenly told him that long trip in Asia will help each of them — to the initiator, Peter with the face of Adrien Brody and Jack, played by Jason Schwartzman, — to find former self. And, probably, all that was the right idea from those was visited by the head of Francis, even though he was pretty 've heard criticism in his address.

It was not just ride it had to promote them in acquiring the confidence, the soil under the feet, to help the brothers to become closer, to understand each other, mentally cleansed, visiting the Church and finally, just quietly after a pause. Typically, such travel is not dispense conflicts, scandals and squabbles, especially when everyone is a man in the Prime of life, able to light the lantern offender under eye. It and happened. But to some extent it and was one of the steps which are on the top of understanding and the fraternal compromise.

Through the movement of the various frames that flash like multi-colored images under The Kinks and The Rolling Stones as the changing landscapes from the window of the train, gleaming on the sun, especially highlighting the bright colors, we watching the main characters, performed in a relaxed manner, Brody, Wilson and Schwartzman. Most importantly, that could these guys, it's become a real brothers on screen, which, though often there were disagreements but they in a difficult moment were ready to support one another, and the last third. And though outwardly opposing this trip, each of them somewhere internally aware that all no wonder and I just go to them good.

Wes Anderson originally without every delay puts the viewer in the course of the case, framing all the usual a frame style, no opening the bike, but not slipping in tediousness. The Director continues to keep a sense of rhythm, which only occasionally will be interrupted for a popular slow images or for the calm of the main actors, and the awakening of emotions in those who is the other side of the screen.

With all the promiscuity of the genre, filed under a wrapper clean road-movie, in front of us, after all, in a greater degree in drama. And "The Darjeeling Limited" applies for to take the bar very serious product in Anderson's filmography that is trying to protect the brothers from the absurdity of their actions and, in the end, to help overcome the planned thousandth of a degree, which will allow children to forget all their numerous grievances and experiences.

She left.
- What?
- She left.
- What?
- She left.
- Who?.. She left? Where?
Not know, but she left us Breakfast.

As often happens, that someone time to a departing train. So life and death, no waiting in front of them all equal. The only thing that we can do in such a situation it is dig it happened so it happened... In the end we will have to wait for the next train!

- All the imaginary heroes

Substantially shaken the relationship of the three Whitman brothers after his father's death trying to restore the elder Francis. Absolutely not to communicate for a year, he brought all three of them for a mysterious trip to India on train.

Three, each in my but it is incredibly hard suffered the loss. The youngest of brothers Jack wrote little stories on scrap paper, events in the day of the funeral and frankly not recognize this fact, calling all the heroes fictitious. So he hard going through a breakup with his girlfriend, with whom they met before the trip. The "average" Peter to still mourns the day. And yet his soon to be born son. he not sure does wife. Francis seems not able to come to terms with the loss.

To come to terms with the loss incredibly hard. However, much in our lives cannot be changed and if something bad happens, is either to accept and live or not and to carry this pain your heart. Having made an unsuccessful suicide attempt on a motorcycle, he plans and this journey. The true purpose of which the meeting with drop of mother.

Scene at river and the subsequent to the funeral, again rallied their three. Leaving a deep impression in everyone's soul, forcing again to recall the events of that day. And maybe something to rethink...

The long-awaited meeting with the mother of meeting with the past. She they are not been waiting a long time with this last goodbye, to get away from him in the end of the world. In the end it turned out that in silence they four to say to each other is more than words. Because it has no answers to their questions, answers themselves.

Don't be afraid to go further, not be afraid of change, live happily and make others happy. And if to get the train rushing forward to throw all the suitcases, so do that.
