"Old World in New Eyes, but That World is Too Pink!".

In the midst of a cinematic atmosphere which dark shades and skeptical looks appear is taking over all the screen of cinema's today; this film it's seem talking out a silent voice through its colorful world (?!).

An impression you can't not see when the movie has just begins -- this movie is overusing so color-effects, creating cute looks like the movie is fairy tail story for teen-girl!

It's impossible for me to understand why people like it, admire it?!

If you like this movie that thing proves that your world is full of fantasy and fictional thing when your-eyes just see-the-world is just a-fairy-tale.

Such a boring, bizarre movie! - I can only say.

The film seems to have touched the hearts of viewers with the glimmer of a sense, the romantic spirit that the movie provide: dreaming and mischievous humor consistently (?!).

The fictitious Zubrowka Republic country is mentioned through in the film as a fairy-tale-kingdom for those who only-dreamed-all-day and they decide to forgetful-reality.

The movie only follows the success of "Moonrise Kingdom" but only at the level of further upsets and its run out of ideas!

I haven't even care the scene and the characters; from the panorama of the hotel and many details such as: paper-cut pictures, furniture and some other dazzlingly colorful character... For sure the director's visual design is as colorful as a dollhouse (!).

This world too much PINK!

One again, I assert this-film-is-only-for-teen-girl-dreaming!!!

This movie is a combination of a stage play with some nonsense scene insignificant and useless details! (what-everyone-knows).

The characters are so rigid that every the dialogue of the movie while make me thing its only reflect to their world through their role play!

The film doesn't seem to stand out ideas; if we forget to mention the mountains, land space of nature, fresh but only reflected as if clearly its after through the visual-impression-techniques and CGI (?).

The first time you see this movie it looks new, attractive; if you think carefully, its really no highlight although with colorful can not make it get better. I guarantee it only- succeeded-in-terms-of-visuals!! But doesn't mean that it will succeed in terms of content.

Concise, I'm just say one thing: this movie just adding-a-black spot for cinema's future! For me, 1/10 is a "lucky" ratings for this movie because it is worse than that...

Wes Anderson's Best?

I would consider myself a Wes Anderson fan, however in saying that, I have only seen a handful of his movies. I was very excited for The Grand Budapest Hotel, because of its excellent cast, the fact it's directed by Wes Anderson and just by how unique it looked. After watching The Grand Budapest Hotel, I can confidently say that it's my new favourite Wes Anderson film, and probably his best.

As I was hoping, the story to The Grand Budapest Hotel is very original and unique, some may even say strange. And as the movie goes on, the story only gets wilder and wilder. The film is often very hilarious, with some seriously funny dark humour thrown in there as well. Characters are extremely well written, with the bond between Gustave and Zero being the backbone of the whole movie as it's so well written. The Grand Budapest Hotel features an odd narrative structure that works very well for the film, again adding to the uniqueness and freshness of it. I wasn't exactly sure how the story would play out, as I purposely avoided all promotional materiel so I would know as little as possible before watching. This was a great benefit to my viewing experience as I loved everything I saw, and felt as though nothing was spoiled from watching too many trailers.

I haven't been a huge fan of most of Ralph Fiennes' work since his phenomenal performance in 1993′s "Schindler's List", but this is easily his best performance since then. He proves he can do comedy just as well as he can do drama, providing a perfect balance of both. Newcomer Tony Revolori is excellent as well. I won't get into the whole supporting cast because there's so many who were all so great, but I was particularly impressed by Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law and Saoirse Ronan.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is definitely a Wes Anderson film, down to its very core. If you know his style, then you known what to expect, as this movie is full of it. Thankfully though, it's not a case of style over substance, with a great story to accompany the gorgeous visuals. The colour palette is beautiful; it's nice to see lot's of bright colours when so many other films are so dark and dreary. The set design and costumes are perfect, and there's so much attention to detail within the sets. The cinematography is phenomenal, and I really like how the film was presented in different aspect ratios.

You really can't go wrong with this film. It's probably Wes Anderson's best film, it has gorgeous visuals, excellent acting and a wonderful story. If you're a fan of Wes Anderson's previous work, you cannot miss this, and even if you're not a fan you should go and see it anyway.

"There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity... He was one of them. "

Wes Anderson is one of the last directors -auteurs- who's got complete control on the film set and has the power to make whatever kind of film he desires. His distinct visual style is apparent since his 1996 debut Bottle Rcoket. But that was just a start, with every film he made he was perfecting his technique more and more. This marvelous attention to detail, the way he composes his shots( tracking shots, the symmetry, the characters running in slow-motion), chase scenes, love story, nostalgia, explanatory montages, the colourful set design and the prevalent theme of every one of his films: family. This all adds up to the reason why the audience enjoys Anderson's film so much. This all is brought to perfection in Grandhotel Budapest.

Through complex narrative framework, which itself is a mockery of all these films that are being narrated by someone and is also being an excuse for not being too realistic, we get to a story of a young lobby boy named Zero Moustafa and Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes)the concierge of the Grandhotel Budapest. Many of the female guests of the hotel mainly come to enjoy Gustave's company. When one of these ladies passes away, Gustave grabs Zero and boards a train for her mansion. Soon he's blamed for her murder and hunted by police led by Edward Norton and a grim-faced assassin played by Willem Dafoe. There also is a love story between two young teens - Zero and Agatha (Saoirse Ronan) who has a birthmark in the shape of Mexico.

I frankly don't understand how can this film be successful in the USA. This film is just so typically European, that I guess some aspects of the film Americans just aren't familiar with. Some of the humor reminded of old French, Italian and Czech comedies.

Wes Anderson remains to be a stand-out filmmaker who never disappoints with any of his creations and is a safe bet to rely on his qualities. You won't want to return to the real world when the credits start to roll.
