THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H., a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune -- all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.
Comedy - Like all of director Wes Anderson's films, this is an extremely
quirky comedy/drama. Although there are a number of known stars in
the cast, most appear only briefly, with this being a big lead
showcase for star Ralph Fiennes. Language and some sexual content
make the film inappropriate for kids, who would not be interested anyhow.
PROFANITY: 13 F-words, 6 S-words; 10 GD's, a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex with related nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights and killings with some blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: A chase. COMEDY: Constant banter and sight gags, sometimes dark and suggestive.
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent Anderson the illusion-maker is more than graceful, he's dazzling, and with this movie he's created an art-refuge that consoles and commiserates. It's an illusion, but it's not a lie.
USA TodayFull Review Very Good This stylized and vibrant caper is Wes Anderson's most ambitious, mesmerizing and complex tale yet.
NY PostFull Review Average 'GBH' is a featherweight screwball comedy that, trying mightily to be cosmopolitan, feels awfully provincial, desperately touristy:...
