    ★★★★

    Exactly what you would expect from a Wes Anderson film. Visuality, a cavalcade of great actors, subtle jokes, great dialogue and hidden wisdoms delivered in a breathtaking pace.

    Ennui-sur-Blasé is the French town where the stories take place. Without a doubt a, this city is based on a caricatured depiction of Paris.
