Product Description

The Romantic Road DVD is about an intrepid UK couple who sets out to drive their 1936 Rolls Royce across India to Bangladesh for a festival in this indie road trip documentary.

The Romantic Road DVD. Leading London lawyer and his wife re-define later life by motoring across rural India in their battered 1936 Rolls Royce, to get to a human rights festival in Bangladesh. Rupert and Jan are an English couple in their late 60s living in the south of England. They still receive their milk from a milkman every day, their rural cottage is alive with chickens, sheep and cats, and their family car is a hand-me-down 1936 Rolls Royce. After being invited to a human rights conference in India, they decide to turn the trip into an epic adventure. Shipping their beloved Rolls Royce across to the sub-continent, they embark upon an ambitious 5000-mile, six-month journey from Mumbai to Dhakar battling local officials, dodging tribal conflicts and dining with maharajahs.

Meet Rupert and Jan Grey, a free-spirited upper-class English couple in their sixties, married for 35 years and on the verge of retirement. Not content to live out their autumn years by the fire, they ignore everyone's advice and embark on a remarkable journey - to drive their 1936 Rolls Royce across India on their way to a human rights 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. With its mix ofroad-movie, biopic, travelogue and madcap adventure, Romantic Rd DVD at once a film about a unique expedition, a glimpse at a love story 35 years in the making and a reminder to never stop embracing the possibilities of life.
