Disappointing. I'm a Wes Anderson fan but this was not up to snuff. Sad after the long wait!

A lot of twee story-telling, acting, and scenery that, alas, don't add up to very much. Just the introductory sequence, with its Russian doll effects, tells you all you need to know about this film's sensibilities.

delightful movie...lush, sensorial treats in every scene--eye candy to view, ear candy script. No earth-shaking, emotional revelations but a movie that will leave you feeling happy you spent the time.

Whimsical, but not hilarious. Amusing enough for an evening. Very similar to "The Royal Tenenbaums" and "Moonrise Kingdom."

It started off slow but I ended up liking it. It's not really funny or sad...more amusing and melancholy. It is very interesting storytelling.

Builds a unique world filled with luminous characters and finely acted performances. The cast and cameos are memorable. Part of the fun is figuring out who that actor is! Several cartoonish action sequences, a mysterious plot, and fanciful musical score enliven the proceedings of this thoroughly enjoyable romp! My favorite was the downhill ski/sled sequence. Highly recommended!!

peculiar. fantastical. imaginative. cultish. I quite enjoyed this little tale told by the young lobby boy as he tells the exploits of his manager during his training. I shall look for other movies by this director.

I just finished watching "The Grand Budapest Hotel." It was a very peculiar movie, rather surrealistic. I can't exactly say I enjoyed it as I was more puzzled by it than anything. Really, if I had known what it was like, I would have never watched it. I suppose you'd call it an "artsy" film.

The film shows once again that Wes Anderson is truly a whimsical master of nostalgia, albeit overly-stylish at times. See it.

Moustafa on Gus:
--There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity... He was one of them. What more is there to say?
--To be frank, I think his world had vanished long before he ever entered it - but, I will say: he certainly sustained the illusion with a marvelous grace!

Gus: I must say, I find that girl utterly delightful. Flat as a board, enormous birthmark the shape of Mexico over half her face, sweating for hours on end in that sweltering kitchen (in the bakery), while Mendl, ...
