The shots in The Grand Budapest Hotel were the best part of the film, and are the signature of the Wes Anderson cinematic style. His craft with storytelling also shine through as a strong point of the film, keeping the audience intrigued and guessing. Another strength of the film was its cast, which included Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori as Zero, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton and Jude Law, and many other well known names. Wes Anderson has been known to use many actors in consecutive productions, which was again displayed in cameo roles for this film, including a short part for Bill Murray.
The film is a great one and definitely one you should take the time to see, especially if you enjoy the films that Wes Anderson typically creates. The Grand Budapest Hotel presents a quirky, visually beautiful, plot twisting comedy that focuses on the story of a young lobby boy. Wes Anderson was fully able to flex his cinematic strength with The Grand Budapest Hotel.
