Drew Edelstein’s review published on Letterboxd:
An elegy for our history. Anderson sucks you in with his intimate craftsmanship, providing joy and intrigue and humor and suspense as the capers of Zero and Gustave fold. It's such a tight, comforting, and bittersweet story that time will fly by in an instant; before you know it, you're witnessing the greatness of the past as it's current decrepit shell, abstracted through generations of legend and admiration. While the stories we tell may live on forever, the reality is far different.
The screen always cuts to black in the end.
