Andrew and I made Indian food and watched the classic, yet strangely under appreciated film, The Darjeeling Limited. 

I realised at one point in the film that I essentially had the meal Francis had picked for himself on the train; the chicken, soup, and the pudding for dessert. 

More specifically, I made Jalfrezi chicken with peas & green beans, basmati rice, and garlic naan and Bombay potatoes, (which I chose to count as the soup). Later, I had pistachio pudding! Mmmm…

I re-watched this film in mute with subtitles and imagined what it would be like to experience this film as a deaf person; with no clue there is anything beyond dialogue in the film and missing out on a key and memorable soundtrack. This made the film lack so much more depth and emotion and made me realise the great impact music has in setting the tone/mood of films which people don’t usually realise or give much thought to…
