Romantic Road

An intrepid UK couple sets out to drive their 1936 Rolls Royce across India to Bangladesh for a festival in this indie road trip documentary.

"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." (British Film Festival)

While undoubtedly sold on the conceit of this colonial vehicle journeying through modern day India, Romantic Road’s drive is, as one of the Greys’ daughters’ says, “less about their purpose and more an expression of who Dad is”.
