Written and directed by the legend, Wes Anderson (whose birthday was May 1), this gem tells the story of a charming concierge (Monsieur Gustave H.) of a famous European hotel and his trusted employee (young Zero Moustafa) in the early 20th century as they become involved in a family feud over wealth, fortune and a valuable painting.
This film follows the design that most Anderson-directed films do, a mix of quirkiness and whimsy along with a beautiful color palette and amazing cinematography that make this film such eye candy.
The fast-paced plot of the film makes it quite enjoyable, although some themes may be a bit lewd. For viewers looking for something vibrant, aesthetically pleasing yet somewhat strange, this one’s for you.
