Genre: Documentary, Adventure, Romance. Dir: Oliver McGarvey. Country: Canada.
Rupert and Jan Grey are a free-spirited and eccentric upper-class English couple in their sixties, married for 35 years and on the verge of retirement. At a time when most couples are preparing for a simple life, this intrepid couple ignore everyone’s advice and embark on a remarkable journey – to drive Rupert’s father’s 1936 Rolls Royce across India on their way to a photography festival in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Over six months and some 5000 miles, they fall into company with tea-wallahs and maharajahs, dodge tribal conflicts, negotiate with border officials and make constant mechanical repairs.
Truly unique among adventure films, Oliver McGarvey’s stunning documentary is at once a rare glimpse into an inspired expedition, a study of a love story 35 years in the making and a reminder to never stop embracing the possibilities of life.
