Movie Info

David Weaver makes his feature debut with this omnibus film in which each tale is told during different points during the 20th century, but in the same hotel room -- room 720. The film opens during the swinging '20s when a beautiful young woman, married against her will to a brutish thug of a man, endures a tension-fraught honeymoon. During the Depression segment, a mail-order bride from China meets her husband for the first time. Following the end of WWII, a soldier returns home to meet his girlfriend and his best friend. During the paranoia of the 1950s, a professor searches for his wife. During the 1980s, a lawyer has too much sex and debt, and during the dawn of the millennium, a woman comes to a newly refurbished room 720 to meet her Internet lover. Such acclaimed Canadian actors as Tom McCamus, Sandrine Holt, and Colm Feore star in this film, which was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Its sub-theme of unrequited passions is the overriding irony in that the picture itself suffers from a bit of the ol' interruptus at the decisive point of climax.

Although no less than seven distinct stories are woven together, Weaver keeps the movie coherent.

Audience Reviews for Century Hotel

An interesting movie centered around room 720 in the Century Hotel. The movie weaves together stories about a number of people who have stayed in this room over the years. Some of the stories are separated by decades of time. The acting is good all around. Many of the stories went in a direction I didn't expect, and Im still not exactly sure what happened with the musician.

Interesting drama, some episodes more engrossing than others, but they all work reasonably well. Good photography. The cast is fine, but no one stood out as either great or poor. I liked the movie's premise.

Kinda neat to see each different era. Gives you perspective that stuff has actually happened everywhere you go, and that you're just a piece of the puzzle.
