The Grand Budapest Hotel Movie Review

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
The film itself is a rollercoaster of screwball comedy, deftly puppeteered by a filmmaker in complete control of his tools. One of the little gems he delivers here is an eye-popping mountaintop snow-chase sequence that'll have you cheering from your seat. But the film is as much a celebration of a bygone era, and Anderson gives us loving nostalgia-soaked montages and impressions of 1930s Europe. Whimsical, busy, and irresistibly charming, The Grand Budapest Hotel is an absolute must-watch. I'm going with four out of five. Check in immediately!

But it is the story of the Grand Budapest that stars, for this is an ode to an age of beauty and brutality, velvet and crystal, puddings and pomade, based on 'the Bureau of Labour and Servitude' - which discards its diamonds and puts on its war boots. This whimsical tale oozes charm while brisk editing lets you enjoy - but not be overwhelmed by - cakes like mountains and mountains like cakes, chandeliers, perfumed men and Persian pussies. Hitchcock, Rembrandt and Orwell are some of the guests at The Grand Budapest Hotel. If you like them, you will like this Wonderland.

The Grand Budapest Hotel, despite its pink-as-icing facade and pop-up book visual style, is a romanticisation of the saddest of times, of a fictionalised Europe before the Nazi invasion, of a world that was never as ideal as in Wes' vintage-Hollywood loving imagination. Wes rarely sermonises, but what he gifts us with The Grand Budapest Hotel is quite the balm: it is a realisation that if we close our eyes (or, indeed, open them wider), history is just as we choose to remember it. And nobody makes denial look this fabulous.

Inspired by the works of the Austrian novelist and playwright Stefan Zweig -- a popular writer in the 1920s-1930s who is hardly known outside Europe, Budapest Hotel is a wild and crazy story within a story. We are blessed, that in this age of crass, commercial filmmaking, there is a special corner reserved for Anderson to inhabit this wonderful, magical life. And we thank him from the bottom of our hearts for letting us experience his dreams in full colour and grandeur

This film is a visual extravaganza – the impossible bubble gum pink hotel with its gilded elevators and white tulips, the regal purple dress that the staff wears and statuesque heiresses (decidedly old) with their innumerable pieces of baggage. However, in the Grand Budapest Hotel, behind the charm of this façade we see the reality of war and allusions to Nazi Germany.The film is a screwball comedy in its truest sense. Buoyant and idiosyncratic, opulent and silly, this one is for lovers of cinema that goes beyond Hollywood mainstream.

. In The Grand Budapest Hotel, however, Anderson has created a gem that gleams brilliantly from every angle. The film’s design and cinematography are exquisite, so much so that every frame feels like a perfectly-executed miniature painting. One of the most delicious details in The Grand Budapest Hotel is the courtesan du chocolat, a little tower of chocolate and butter cream icing that appears at critical moments of the film. It’s made by Zero’s sweetheart, Agatha (Saoirse Ronan), and just the sight of it will make you crave dessert.

    Year’s most beautiful Film! A Masterstroke on screen…literally! [4/5]

    ‘The former Republic of Zubrowka’; now I don’t have any clue even in its most blurred vision that where on earth this breathtakingly mystical state of God’ own artwork is located at but it definitely finds a place in your heart with its most charming narrative, simply unbelievable picturesque visuals and most sophisticated yet chaotically hilarious characters I have ever come across. Wes Anderson’s THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is a magic-box full of color-decorated candies that not only appear the most fascinating objects of desire at the nearest confectionary store but also put assorted, surprising and tickling flavors on your taste-buds.

    Inspired by the writings of Austrian novelist Stefen Zweig, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL transports you to a magnificently painted world where every sight is a visual treat with colors flowing all over; even under the skin-tissues of its highly adorable characters. The writer of a memoir [Jude Law] recalls his widely treasured stay in the most celebrated establishment of its times and manages to discover interesting incidents happened between the present owner Zero Moustafa [F. Murray Abraham] who had once started as a lobby boy there and its then caretaker-cum-supervisor Monsieur Gustave [Ralph Fiennes]. Monsieur Gustave is an adequately dressed charming man who certainly knows how to make his guests’ day and that doesn’t make him any uncertain to go under sheets with rich women much older than him.

    The ride begins when one of Gustave’s devoted patrons Madam ‘D’ [played by Tilda Swinton] takes her last breath in mysterious circumstances and Monsieur Gustave has to take part in her last ceremonies including reading of the will. Inheriting one of the most valuable paintings she possessed, Gustave is now on the top in the ‘hate-list’ of family members and the ‘Hit-list’ of a cold-blooded assassin [Willem Dafoe in his most surprising avatar] they have hired. The younger version of Zero Moustafa as the lobby boy [Tony Rivolori in his impressive debut] accompanying Gustave is the prime and constant witness to the story.

    Two key fronts on which THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL scores highest, are the technical brilliance and the smartest of wit in the writing! This is probably the finest example of putting writer’s imagination perfectly right on the bigger canvas of cinema. The eyes of the viewers are always found in conflict with the mind if the frames on screen are of a motion picture or a painting on wall? If detailed and the most scrupulous production design or excellent camerawork from tranquil track shots to crisp zoom-ins does wonders for the look, subtle humor-sophisticated wit and very reasoned smartness in the writing fills you with utter joy. The performer-brigade helmed by Ralph Fiennes is outstanding. Ralph’s Monsieur Gustave will charm you with a flawless and delightful performance. In rest, Willem Dafoe amazes you as Jopling-the assassin. Edward Norton and Bill Murray’s special appearances are enjoyable.

    But one thing that can’t be missed out in this whole 100 minute stay at THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is the signature stamp of Wes Anderson all over it. The characters having more colors than its vivacious backgrounds and the frames with more characters to them! This is a cinematic experience that will leave you ‘Gespannt wie ein Flitzebogen’; on the edge of your seat, it means. DO NOT MISS IT! [4/5]
