Wes Anderson's most recent fabulous and critically acclaimed film shows us a story that seems taken from another world because it's everything, but not plausible in lots of ways. The Grand Budapest hotel itself is quite magic and becomes a story as well.
The style of this movie is the Wes Anderson style, which means that there might people that really don't like or understand what's the point of the film because it doesn't have the comedic scenes we expect. It is a much more refined comedy lead by an amazing Ralph Fiennes that portrays Monsieur Gustave, a man that doesn't lose his way of behaving even if he is in prison. Based and inspired on Stefan Zweig works, this movie explains the arrival of nazism with a style and a screenplay that may not seem appropriate but that has some memorable quotes that denote that Zweig is behind those words.
Everything seems like a paranoia with no sense and that it has nothing to tell but it ends up being a story of the war and some of the things that happened told from a point of view that probably anybody has explored like Anderson. The way he sees and shows the scenes that push out a lot of creativity, ideas, a lot of personality, The Hotel and other places seem like a doll's house...
It is a movie to appreciate how a director sees a story and how he explains what somebody else could have done in a totally different way. Some have said this is a masterpiece, it probably is because of the cleverness that lies underneath all the comedic and refined style of Mr. Gustave and his loyal helper, the lobby boy.
