Product Description

Amazon.ca

In this Criterion Collection release, The Darjeeling Limited is loaded with extras, from those that add conceptual heft to those more game-like, providing links to click and play with while sifting through material. Disc 1 offers a complete version of the 15-minute short film "Hotel Chevalier," starring the same protagonist, Jack (Jason Schwartzman), as The Darjeeling Limited. This is called a "short story" and an "introduction to the feature" by Wes Anderson in his audio commentary. "Hotel Chevalier," starring Jack and his thorny lover, portrayed by Natalie Portman, is meant to be viewed before Darjeeling Limited's opening sequence, in which Bill Murray rushes to catch a train he isn't destined to ride on. In the short film, clues about contents of the brothers' luggage in the feature are answered, but more importantly it gives the viewer access into Anderson's creative mind, fertilizing one character idea that he admittedly rolled into a larger script. Disc 2 offers some jaunty excursions, like an American Express commercial mocking the notion of the big personality, in this case Anderson's director persona, whipping out his credit card for grand expenditures. One sees Anderson's real "Trophy Case" and other personal snippets in a section called "Wari's Diary," a series of icons that open up to journalistic reminiscences about filming in India. In this, one sees animals the film crew saw, and a hilarious "Special Effects" link shows a bunch of men running past a still train car's windows with palm tree fronds to simulate a moving train on camera. A short film by Roman Coppola also adds to the travel-diary feel of this extras disc. The meatiest inclusion here is the 30-minute "Making of the Darjeeling Limited" by Barry Braverman, which chronicles some of the at-times humorous challenges the crew faced filming in India. "Conversation with James Ivory," a filmed interview between James Ivory and Wes Anderson, is fascinating, as it charts a history of Indian cinema and its soundtracks that both directors admire. Through this Criterion treatment, one will come away understanding Anderson's working environment and his inspirations both at large and specific to this film, and will get to know a bit about his creative process through seeing how his short films are seedlings for larger ideas. Great stuff. --Trinie Dalton

5.0 out of 5 stars Wes Anderson Gives Us Another Brilliant Film! April 7 2013
By Miracle Max TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Darjeeling Limited is my favorite Wes Anderson film made so far.

It's naturally created in that same Wes Anderson style that his fans have grown to love, adore, and become kind of addicted to.

The Story of 3 brothers, with 3 very different lives and personalities coming together one year after the death of their father. They have not seen or spoken to each other since the funeral, until they reunite on a train travelling through India called the Darjeeling Limited.

The story takes us on a comedic yet emotional journey through India as the 3 brothers try to once again connect with one another as brothers and to search out the mystery as to where there estranged mother has disappeared to.

Each brother plays a role. The Leader, The Lover, And the Follower of dreams.

The film opens up with a featurette called "Hotel Chevalier" which acts as a prologue to The Darjeeling Limited. In it, Jack's (Jason Schwartzman) ex-girlfriend (Natalie Portman) turns up unexpectedly at his hotel room in Paris, and they spend the night together.

The film will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you a little angry...but in the end you realize what this journey of 3 brothers was really about......Love & Friendship.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite Wes Anderson films Jan. 3 2014
By Rose
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Gets better with more viewings. Beautifully curated soundtrack with songs taken from Bollywood movies. I wish I could buy the brothers' luggage! Adrian Brody looks super gorgeous throughout. Bit of a slow paced movie but more focused than some of the larger ensemble cast Anderson films.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favourite movies. July 31 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watch a lot of movies and when I saw the cast I was like , why not. I love everything about this movie, where should I start. The cinematography is fantastic, covering many different landscapes as the characters travel India. The music is simply perfect for the movie, I cannot imagine other choices for the scenes sometimes I still feel like I'm in the movie when I hear the songs. The character development is my favourite part about this movie, you get to see the characters grow and develop as the movie progresses and you end up with really lifelike and raw characters that are really the crowning achievement of this fantastic film. Definitely take time to watch this one, and then pick up your own copy.

Strange, weird, hilarious.
Humor along the same lines as the Royal Tenebaums and I Heart Huckabees. Watched it multiple times and it still makes me laugh.
