Wes Anderson hits it out of the park with his strong, gutsy adherance to a stylish artistic vision. The cinematography is extraordinary, using space and movement very well; the sets clean and appropriately atmospheric; the music tying the movie down to its label of Comedy. With a charming script and a lovely cast, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' may not be a belly-roarer, but it provides smiles and an odd feeling of warm butterflies.

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

What more is there to say?

Wes Anderson's balanced, geometric, weird (and pink) frames. Who says vision can't be whimsical!

Few things are more charismatic than this film, the performances were unforgettable as the joy watching it.

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' is heavily packed with a talented cast and stylish visuals but doesn't suffocate under its own weight thanks to a narrative that's deeply emotional.

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' is wildly fun and comical despite it being a murder mystery film. The film takes you on a chase involving a priceless Renaissance painting and a battle for an enormous family fortune, recounting the adventures of Gustave H and Zero Moustafa. Ironically, much of the film's action and plot are staged outside the hotel, which Anderson could've explored more seeing as it was revered to be 'grand' throughout the film after all. A worthy note would be the world Wes Anderson has created once again, The Grand Budapest Hotel and the fictional providence of Zubrowka is warm and vibrant, set against the backdrop of a changing continent soon to enter a war.

The pairing of Fiennes and Revolori as the lead characters are surprising and delightful despite being new faces to Anderson's films. While much of the supporting characters are Anderson staples such as Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe Edward Norton, and Bill Murray. The pair truly capture the bond of Gustave H and Zero, the characters' relationship and its development is heart-warming and bittersweet while the dramatization capture the whimsical signature of Anderson. Anderson is quite skilled in crafting adolescent and juvenile characters that we've seen in 'Rushmore,' 'The Royal Tenenbaums,' and 'Moonrise Kingdom,' but his recent take on grown-up characters is still improving.

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' features Wes Anderson essentials-a beautiful and vibrant production design, quirky and eccentric characters, romantic subplot, a warm filter, and a deceptive visual style- that leaves almost nothing to complain about and much to adore.

One of the most enchanting and atmospheric movies I've seen in a long while. Wes Andersons motifs and stylistic marks gel perfectly with the story. Good acting all round but especially from Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori. My favourite Wes Anderson film so far.

In true Wes Anderson fashion, The Grand Budapest Hotel is a odd film with plenty of unexpected twists and turns that leave you laughing at the pure delight and absurdity of it all. I wasn't sure what to expect going into this film, but the visuals of this film give almost an other-wordly feel to the atmosphere, and the dialogue is quick-witted and incredibly entertaining. I could see myself returning to this film again a couple times, but it's not on my Top 100 List or anything.

The Bottom Line:
Entertaining, eccentric and unique, this film will give you exactly what you expect in a Wes Anderson film. If you're in the mood for some guffaws and a film that is artistic in it's atmospheric styles, that is what it provides in it's own modest, humble, insignificant...oh, fuck it.

Big-Screen, Buy-It, Rent-It, Pass?

Whimsical movie about a famous concierge of a European hotel in the early 1930s who is framed for murder. He is eventually proven innocent and inherits great wealth. Part is played excellently by Ralph Fiennes. I highly recommend this.

An extremely well made movie with great performances all around particularly from Ralph Fiennes who gives a charming and incredibly well timed performance.

What a five-star yummy visual treat; this has to be Wes Anderson's grandest cinematic endeavour. So delicious to look at, one can almost forget about the loony caricatures scurrying about in a wafer-thin plot.

Elegant production design, funny plot and creative cinematography. But a bit brutal.

Kisah petualangan hidup Gustave M. dan Mustafa muda dikemas dengan komedi ringan yang tidak membosankan. Kedua sosok ini juga memperlihatkan sebuah hubungan atasan-bawahan yang kemudian luntur menjadi "sahabat" lewat sebuah kesetiakawanan dan loyalitas. Harapan saya, mungkin film ini patut dijadikan sebagai salah satu criterion collection. Film berdurasi 100 menit mungkin adalah salah satu yang terbaik di tahun 2014. Penonton tidak akan menyesal untuk mengeksplorasi dunia The Grand Budapest hotel yang penuh warna, aksi, dan tawa.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is one of those movies that you can watch a hundred times and still be astonished on how beautifully crafted the movie is and how incredible and creative, the storytelling is. Remarkable!

A delightful surprise - on every level. Think of this as "The Princess Bride", only for fans of dramatic period pieces instead of a young boy playing video games.

Boring since the begin until the end, the story isn't interesting, the suspense scenes are predictable, without charismatic characters, with Ralph Fiennes character exception and with a weak script which made the organised narrative looks silly, like the hole in the cell's floor. Grand Busdapest Hotel brings to us a desnecessary movie with some cliches, but with a stunning and unusual, in the good way, visual and it deserves to be applauded because of that. The touching and comic scenes didn't work.

A joy to watch this charming and humorous film.
