The Grand Budapest Hotel

Movie Rating: Geoffrey Crété

The concierge of the luxurious Grand Budapest Hotel is caught up in an affair of love, murder and treachery.

Republic of Zubrowka, Central Europe. 1920. At the Grand Budapest Hotel, a plot is thickening, rife with love, murder, treason, war and art. Gustave H., the concierge of the palace, together with his lobby boy, are caught up in a bizarre adventure when one of his very rich conquests is found dead. Things get even more complicated when Gustave realizes she left him a priceless a painting, provoking the anger of her son.

Every new movie by Wes Anderson is irresistibly delightful, sweetly crazy and not to be missed. The Grand Budapest Hotel fits the mold: nutty characters, subtle humor, a unique universe, flamboyant direction with a troupe of excellent actors – including a rare appearance by Ralph Fiennes in the lead. The element of surprise, which has slowly disappeared with the success of each Wes Anderson film, has made room for a sweet stroll through conquered territory, offering wonderful entertainment.

Oh man, I really can't argue the fact that Wes Anderson knows how to make an aesthetic impression. It's beautifully shot, the costumes, the make-up. Nearly everything. Now if it could just hold my attention throughout, then it'd 5 golden stars. I'm obviously not a fangirl and never will be. Pity that. It's not you, it's me.Show more

Excellent, funny with perfect cast and pictures. Great dish for all Wes Anderson lovers, but also for those, who love good, played on different levels, cinema.

This is a quirky movie & I loved it. A lot of really funny one liners, in fact I will see it again because I'm sure I missed some. A faultless cast, Ralph Fiennes shone as Gustave & despite his usual intense performance showed his apt capability to be ridiculously funny. Zero wonderfully portrayed by Tony Revolori doesn't really have to speak, his expressions say it all. Tilda Swinton is only on screen for a short time but for all that, she manages to make you remember her. I strongly recommend this movie.Show more
