Felix von Pless’s review:
It is remarkable that—in such a short time frame of almost 100 minutes—one can get so familiar with characters you didn't know two hours ago. Telling the audience a story with a wide range of complex individuals involved is an art which only few filmmakers of our time truely understand. One of them is Wes Anderson.
By this, he tells stories in the tradition of some grands maîtres like Woody Allen, Claude Chabrol or Pedro Almodóvar. These people are able to make you laugh, cry and love—all together if possible, while sitting in your cinema chair.
There is nothing more to say about Moonrise Kingdom. Only that it is again a film which shows that the love you put in the making of a story can actually inflict the people who read or watch it.
Bravo, Mr. Anderson!
