I just saw The Darjeeling Limited (released on DVD on Tuesday, Feb 26th). As much as I loved Wes Anderson's previous films, Rushmoore and The Royal Tenenbaums, I would have to recommend that you just rent this one. I had a lot of problems with this film: I didn't like the three main characters (nor could I relate to any of them) and the story was going nowhere fast.
By the time they reached their destination, I was yawning :/
Fortunately, Anderson does have an eye for imagery and composition and colors... and a wonderful ear for music. His movie's soundtracks have always been a highlight for me, so, perhaps you can skip the movie and just dive into the soundtrack.
There is an understandably a large amount of original traditional Indian music, composed by Satyajit Ray - but the best tracks seems to be the one hand-picked by Anderson to fit in the movie. Such as a fun "Les Champs-Élysées" by Joe Dassin, "Play With Fire" by The Rolling Stones, "This Time Tomorrow" by The Kinks, and "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)" by Peter Sarstedt.
The Sarstedt track seems overused in the naked Natalie Portman scene in "Hotel Chevalier", but it fits nicely in the main feature.
I found out that this song was quite popular in the UK in 1969, where it was awarded the Ivor Novello Award.
The song is a wonderful folky piece about a beautiful girl called Marie-Claire from Naples, living in Paris. She seems to inspired a lot of suitors and always have an even suntan...
Strangely, the song doesn't end there. It picks up again in his sequel "The Last Of The Breed", about Marie-Claire living in London, twenty years later.
Peter Sarstedt is still making music, his last album released was On Song, in 2006.
