A year after their father's funeral, three brothers travel across India by train in an attempt to bond with each other.
The train scenes were filmed inside a moving train travelling from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer and through the Thar desert. Nothing could be fixed to the ceiling, and filming equipment couldn't be more than a meter out of the windows. Writer and Director Wes Anderson and Production Designer Mark Friedberg went to the Northwestern Railways company and told them they needed ten rail-cars and a locomotive, which they would redecorate entirely and then move around their railway. Northwestern Railways had never gotten such a request, and though it took a lot time and effort, it was eventually granted.
That's my train.
The first time the brothers are in the dining car, the camera cuts between Francis and Peter several times. In the shots of Francis, the back of Peter's head is visible, with his hands on his temples. When the camera faces him, his hands are gone. It happens too fast for him to move his hands up and down.
