A comedy with brilliant production values which create a picture perfect old world charm and complimentary Art Deco, we witness an illustrated story book come to life.
Director Wes Anderson presents a fictitious hotel so convincingly that we hope it’s real and want to visit it some day! His main characters couldn’t be more different from each other, but their unspoken chemistry is great. Concierge Ralph Fiennes and lobby boy Tony Revolori are heroes of a story with many villains. There is love, drama, murder and deceit, but it is all done in a cartoon-like fashion, with exaggerated looks and fashion, making every situation comical.
Multi award winning and rightfully so, the film entertains with every frame’s aesthetics and tickles with its many antics and funny writing. An ensemble cast supports and surprises with its unexpected entry and exit.
An intelligent laugh!
