Honestly, by just looking at the poster of this movie, you can tell it’s going to be a work of art itself.
“The Grand Budapest Hotel” is a ride through the imagination of one of the most creative minds of the film industry. The film has an aura of an old-fashioned movie yet it is filled with visual elements that makes you wish there were more movies with such glorious art direction as this one. Wes Anderson was able to make the hotel look like giant doll house. The movie had some incredible locations and interiors that made me just wish for the The Grand Budapest Hotel to be a real place.
If there’s a movie that could be elegantly funny, it must be this one.
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL 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 ofa suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
The story is goofy, eccentric and sometimes a straight silly yet fantastic storyline being told by a series of great actors which includes Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Adrien Brody , to just name a few.
Yet it is the scenery and sights of the movie, that seems to come straight from a story book, that makes it truly a work of art.
The film maintains an illusion with such grace that when the credits roll down the screen, it makes you wish you had never woken up from such dreamy sights. Probably the greatest Wes Anderson movie up to date, it’s one of those that no lover of great films should miss.
