The Grand Budapest Hotel


The Grand Budapest Hotel
Wes Anderson is back with a very quirky storyline, that won high praise at the Berlin Film Festival and is doing remarkable business at a handful of US venues. The film recounts the adventures of M. Gustave, 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.

Cape Argus / The Star
Lara de Matos quote iconCheck in for five-star experience.

Die Burger
Paul Boekkooi quote iconVeelvlakkige kunswerk oor die lewe.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconInfused with Anderson's idiosyncratic humor as delivered by a squadron of accomplished actors, the movie provides compelling reasons to seek it out. This won't convert those who find the director too abstruse but it represents a pleasant diversion for those who are weary of cookie-cutter motion pictures.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconA filigreed toy box of a movie, so delicious-looking you may want to lick the screen.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconGood, but not the director's best work (although perhaps a second viewing might change my opinion -- one way or the other), it's fun to visit The Grand Budapest Hotel. I just felt it could have been a briefer trip with less highlights and a little more substance.

Tomatometer quote iconTypically stylish but deceptively thoughtful, The Grand Budapest Hotel finds Wes Anderson once again using ornate visual environments to explore deeply emotional ideas.
