I had been waiting to see Wes Anderson's latest project from the moment it was announced. The Canadian release date was delayed, and then ended up being limited to a few theaters. I'm happy to say that it finally made it to a local theater and I saw it at the earliest opportunity a few hours ago.

To describe the plot would be both difficult and pointless. Wes Anderson is an acquired taste and fans are likely to love everything he releases. The Grand Budapest Hotel certainly has the same tongue-in-cheek tone of his previous films, and the similarities don't end there. Neil Young once said that his output was all one song, and Anderson's feels like all one film.

The story is beautifully framed, with an old man recollecting his past to an interested writer. The images are typical Anderson, with the usual explosion of colors and storybook settings. This feeling is heightened by the use of title cards to denote the chapters and the familiar style of music used in previous efforts. The story takes place in three different time periods, but we spend most of our time in 1932. All of the scenes from the past are shown in full screen, while the main narration sequences are in widescreen.

All I will say about the plot is that is focuses on hotel employees M. Gustave (Fiennes) and Zero Moustafa (Revolori). Gustave dates old women and one of them leaves him a valuable painting in her will. Her family are rather annoyed, and hire someone to retrieve the painting. The story is incredibly detailed and vast, despite only running for 100 minutes. There are frequent moments of witty humor, farce, irony and visual gags. Most of Anderson's regulars appear in the film at some point, and it's a tribute to him that such talents are willing to show up for such limited screen time.

This movie had an interesting story. It was told in a way that captured the viewer. Learning about the hotel and the people in it were just the small parts of a much bigger picture. I found this movie to be cleverly told. It had fantastic cinematography, with so many wonderful actors helping to bring it to life. I laughed out loud a few times, and then it hit me, it was slightly reminiscent of The Pink Panther. You know the ones with Jacques Clousseau... oh the laughs!
Lots of people will enjoy and appreciate this movie. I just know it.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a remote mountainside hotel located in the fictional Republic of Zubrowka, a European alpine state.

The film takes place in the early 1930's during a poverty ridden war time, and follows the adventures & misfortunes of the Hotel's concierge (Ralph Fiennes) and his lobby boy (Tony Revolori) on a quest to rightfully obtain a rare and priceless painting called "Boy With Apple", which he surprisingly inherited upon the sudden and mysterious death of his estranged & elderly millionaire lover, and to clear his name of any involvement in her death. However, the son of the late Madame D (Dmitri) full of rage over his mothers relationship with Mr.Gustave will stop at nothing to destroy the playboy concierge, and stop him from finding the "True" and final last will and testament of his late mother which has mysteriously gone missing.

The lobby boy Zero becomes very loyal to Mr.Gustave, and acts as his side-kick/brother in arms throughout the film, while Dmitri (Adrien Brody) sends out his henchman Jopler (Willem Dafoe)to get rid of anyone or anything that attempts to find and expose the "True" last will and testament of his late mother. This is where we see a side of violence that Anderson has not ventured into in any of his previous films, and may catch you off guard at first. With the combination of German Gestapo like violence, and the ever-present sense of the depressing war time in which the film takes place.....this is the "Darkest" of Wes Anderson's films to date, and perhaps one could say it is his contribution to "Film Noir."

This sparkler of a movie has as much to do with the creative prowess of Wes Anderson and Hollywood to provide a high-paced thriller as it does the literary genius of Stefan Zweig to create a lasting impression of things past. I love this film because it reminds me that there are still many traditional values worth fighting for even though the modern world seems prepared to dump them. This historic old hotel, like the Overlook in "The Shining", in all its dated opulence becomes a symbol of what is being lost in society because nobody seems prepared to fight for it. In this romantic portrayal of a lost era, we have an unlikely dynamic duo of Gustav a flamboyant concierge) and Zero (a self-effacing lobby boy) to the rescue. In quixotic fashion, they will save the world of the Grand Budapest Hotel from all that threatens its majestic past by taking on rogues, ne'er-do-wells, charlatans, and imposters bent on destroying it. This story is so rich in detail and color that it can't be told in other format than a fantasy full of death-defying heroics, incredible stunts, plenty of high jinks, lots of special effects, and decisive moments: for what end you might ask? For the saving of a way of life and the rightful ownership of a priceless piece of art. Like a lot of Zweig's writings, winning the battle for virtue over villainy - the saving of the hotel and honoring of its continuing legacy - rarely brings with it any long-term satisfaction. Time and death have a way of closing in on and changing the things we try to hold on to. I felt that way when I recently had the privilege of wandering through the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Slowly but surely, the old is passing away before our very eyes even as we desperately try to hold on to it with all our romantic might. Having said this, the movie is still full of fun as it treats us to a full-life adventure complete with good acting and a fine story.
