The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Wes Anderson is back. Since I have watched The Grand Budapest Hotel I am still dazed whether it is a landmark in film-making or storytelling. Exotic set and takes, brilliant actors who pour in all their talent into extraordinary characters developed meticulously… there is so much in this film! And a careful viewer will not miss the direct connect between the solitude of the hotel and its current owner. The story by itself is nothing ingenious but the presentation makes it stand out of the ordinary. There’s something beautiful about each of the characters however loathsome they might appear. Perhaps it’s the real secret of Wes Anderson’s recipe – he makes seemingly uninteresting characters larger than life. The Grand Budapest Hotel is also a hilarious movie with its share of dark comedy. My rating would be 8.5/10. Watch and have fun!
