[The Grand Budapest Hotel/2015]⤵
[Genre: Drama, Adventure, Comedy - Rating: 8/10]⤵
First, I want to say that Wes Anderson has just made the list of my favourite directors! I really really liked the way this movie was directed, Anderson has a very unique style and I find it very refreshing the fact that he divided the movie to parts, it helped a lot with the plot and also it is something that you don’t usually see in movies. ❇
What more, the cast was so so good! I mean a movie with Ralph Fiennes, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Saoirse Ronan, Bill Murray and Jude Law? With a cast that good, the movie cannot really be a disappointment right? Every actor executed their part very well and all together, they made of film of very good performances. ❇
Plot wise, I loved Zero and Gustav’s friendship, they seemed so devoted to one another! Zero did everything in his power to help break Gustav out of jail, with the help of Agatha of course, and in the end Gustav showed ultimate gratitude, by making Zero his sole heir, leaving him all his fortune. I found Agatha and Zero’s relationship so heartwarming and true, even though they were pretty young and I was very saddened to read about its unfortunate ending.❇
Οne of my favourite parts is when Gustav and Zero are running inside the hotel while Dimitri is pursuing them and all of a sudden everyone starts shooting everyone across the hotel’s balconies! Then Edward Norton’s character appears, seeing all this madness and casually shouts: “OK, who’s shooting who?” Man, you gotta simply love this actor…! ❇
All in all, it's a very vibrant and colouful film with good plot that will definitely keep you on your toes!
