The Grand Budapest Hotel ➶

13 April 2014

Beautiful, subtly deep and layered film. Highly recommended.

If Moonrise Kingdom was about the 01960–01970s, the Grand Budapest is about the 01930s–01940s. Both speak of the human condition.

There was an elderly woman sitting next to me in the cinema. She was crying as the credits rolled.
