I like road movies -- FINDING FANNY rated high for me -- but this seemed like a road movie in search of a road movie. As given, there appear to be structural problems -- as if continuity scenes were scrapped & not replaced. While Benegal seeks to convey the dreamlike magic of the film-watching experience, the viewer may be distracted by the occasional surrealism, the sudden shifts in tone, the questions unanswered if even addressed. The result is a film which has something important to say & does say it well, but left us wondering why it felt like so much was missing

personal rating: 5/10

Vishnu wishes to run away from his father's failing business.

When an opportunity arises to deliver an antique truck to a museum (to which it was sold) on the coast, he sees an opportunity for freedom.

Along the way, he picks up a young runaway, an old entertainer, and a gypsy woman with unexpected events.

This movie is a journey of discovery.
