Wes Anderson is a filmmaker with a very distinct voice. He has a style. Everything he does is molded and shaped to his sensibilities. Almost confrontational so.
His latest offering Grand Budapest Hotel feels very much in line with the rest of his works. Quirky characters, witty dialogue, and the same twelve actors that he uses in all of his movies.
If Grand Budapest Hotel was Wes Anderson’s first film I’d be very excited. But it’s not. And it just looks recycled and refurbished.
The official synopsis is:
“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. “
