The new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel is going to hit the cinemas this spring. Directed by Wes Anderson, it tells the story of the last concierge of a very famous European hotel. As we see in the Grand Budapest Hotel trailer, the name of the concierge is Gustave H. and this role is played by the very talented Ralph Fiennes.
The cast is simply adorable and powerful, starring Bill Murray, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, F.Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, Edward Norton, Tony Revolori and many others. I think it is really hard to get such a company together but if it is done like it is here, the result has to be extraordinary. Many great actors play supportive roles, which represent complex characters with different stories behind them. Somehow, Anderson figured out to not only inspire himself from the stories of Stefan Zweig, but to also get all the amazing actors play roles they never did before.
In this film everything looks magical, even if it is a drama. The Grand Budapest Hotel has amazing fun moments but it stays bittersweet and serious. Even if it seems that our M. Gustave is taken out of an animated fairy tale, he looks genuine and the way he talks and behaves is extra charming. Just like Ralph Fiennes, Gustave H. surprises with his talent and way of thinking. In the movie, he is the old ladies Casanova. That’s what he does, flirting and having nice time with older women that are visiting the hotel, is his favorite thing to do. Unfortunately, this little passion of his is what gets him into a huge trouble that is transformed into a giant adventure.
Tony Revolori plays the role of Zero Moustafa. He is a young lobby boy who tries his best to learn hotel stuff and life from the Gustave. They become true friends and trust each other, teaching us that the most valuable thing in a relationship is the trust. Tony is young and has no huge movie background, but after The Grand Budapest Hotel, his future is shining.
This spring, watch the new comedy drama The Grand Budapest Hotel. Witness the adventures of Gustave and Zero.
