The Grand Budapest Hotel

What is it?

The comedy movie The Grand Budapest Hotel.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

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.

My Thoughts

I saw this movie several years ago once and I liked it, it was a bit unique and colorful and playful, and the world that this movie took place in was like its own fantasy country in Europe and they did a good job making bringing it to life.

The opening scene with the young woman walking up to the statue somewhat reminded me of the movie Amélie for some reason.

The end,
