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.
