The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel ★★★½

aesthetically, the grand budapest hotel is 5 stars. wes anderson has TASTE that no-one can deny.

there are very sweet moments in the grand budapest hotel and ralph fiennes shines (even if the entire cast is great) but i have to admit that something held me back on this rewatch.

i think that perhaps the very quirkiness that is wes anderson's trademark and magic is what distances me somewhat from his films. the emotional aspect is always a little too silly or too comical for my heart to really bond to the characters and the stories.

the grand budapest hotel feels like a childhood pop-up book for me. something light before bed, when your attention is a little unfocused but you want to lose yourself in some pretty pictures before sleep takes you into dreamland...
