The Grand Budapest Hotel

grandbudapesthotel

This drama recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune, all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

This movie is one of the best surprises this year. I haven’t seen a Wes Anderson movie since The Royal Tenenbaums in 2001 and at the time I didn’t think it was interesting. Now, with an excellent international cast, The Grand Budapest Hotel is in my opinion zany, funny, crazy, exceptional and unforgettable … 99 minutes of pure pleasure!

  1. A fantastic movie! I loved the zany characters and the little world Gustave H lives in. Excellent casting.

  2. Good review Amelie. Definitely Anderson’s most ambitious to date. Doesn’t make it perfect or anything, but definitely makes it impressive and fun to watch.
