The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)


Ralph Fiennes
F. Murray Abraham
Mathieu Amalric
Adrien Brody
Willem Dafoe
Jeff Goldblum

Directed by Wes Anderson

The Grand Budapest Hotel started out serious in deed, with Jude Law being inquisitive about the hotel and Zero Moustafa (F. Murray Abraham) sitting him down and telling him how he acquired The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The introduction of Monsieur Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes) was somewhat different to the introduction of the author of the story and Zero Moustafa, we find Gustave already at work being steadfast as the hotel manager. The introduction of Young Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori) with a fake mustache, made me giggle a bit because this was one of those movies I didn’t bother reading about or knowing what it had to offer I just wanted to be surprised and entertained.
To be honest I was.

The Grand Budapest Hotel will take you by surprise when the turn of events start to unfold and the moment you are hooked on the story, you will not want to miss a thing.
The movie boasts of a huge cast, all playing a big part in the grand design the director and writer Wes Anderson intended.
Anderson got his inspiration from the writings of Stefan Zweig, and this British-German film was more like art, as Anderson painted a clear picture of what a good time in the cinema was supposed to feel like on a celluloid canvas.

Monsieur Gustave is a popular concierge in the legendary Grand Budapest Hotel. He gets his kicks by sleeping with the old and gray, being their companion when their men are away or dead.

Everything was going on well for Gustave, until one of his guests dies mysteriously in her home leaving Monsieur Gustave with a priceless painting. Her sons were not ready to share anything with Gustave and made all necessary arrangements to get rid of Gustave.

The movie’s adventure took Gustave and Zero from the hotel to jail, he broke out tried to get back on top of things and there was a shootout, and magnificent ending.

In the end you will applaud the cast and director for such a great job and be thankful for the accolades the movie had.

11 BAFTA Nominations (including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor for Fiennes).A Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. It also got 9 Academy Award nominations (Including Best Picture and Best Director).

A huge financial success and received to critical acclaim I cannot think of any good reason why you should not see this movie.
