A Grand Hotel : Nine Feet Tall
The Grand Budapest Hotel, is director Wes Anderson’s eighth and most wittiest-pastel-infused palette, and polite brand of anarchy films to grace the screen. The film is set in the fictional Republic of Zubrowska, an eastern European nation beset by war and oppression. The story unfolds in 1932, as a story-within-a-story-within-a-story, and follows the blundering escapades of Gustave H. ( Ralph Fiennes ); the dashing concierge of the titular hotel who can be described as somewhat of a dandy— and, in addition to being “ the most liberally-perfumed ” man ever, has a preference for bedding octogenarians.
Inspired by the early films of Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch such as : To Be or Not to Be and The Shop Around the Corner - The Grand Budapest Hotel ( which also happens to be only nine feet tall ) can be described as : having everything, ranging from - crime capers, prison breaks, shoot-outs, murderous henchmen and Nazi SS Squadrons!
The Grand Budapest Hotel is one of the wackiest, delightful comedy-capers from director Wes Anderson, and was filmed within a time frame of 10 weeks in Berlin and Görlitz, Germany, shot in 3 different aspect ratios , with an all star cast - making its debut in limited theaters around Los Angeles on March 7, 2014.
