The Grand Budapest HotelDirector: Wes Anderson
Wes Anderson heads to Europe for the first time with this Indian Paintbrush production starring Saoirse Ronan, Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, and Jude Law. Gustav H., the famous concierge at a legendary hotel situated in the Alps during the 1930's becomes the center of a farcical whirlwind of suspicion when one of his institution's oldest and richest patrons turns up dead, and she suspiciously leaves him her most priceless work of art -- a Renaissance painting of a boy with an apple. Infuriated that she left anything of value to anyone else, the woman's greedy and nefarious heir uses all manner of underhanded and illegal tactics to pin her death on Gustav and to silence anyone who questions his objective of inheriting every penny of her estate, leaving Gustav's trusted lobby boy Zero to clear Gustav's name and prove that the grand lady's killer is none other than her own son.

Glad no one could see me with my jaw dropped through the whole movie. Lots of cast overlap with MOONRISE KINGDOM, which is delightful. Movie is made for lots of use of PAUSE in order to inspect the incredible detailed artwork and written papers. I intend to show this wonder to everyone I love. That will allow me to discover things I must have overlooked in the fast-paced action, wanting not to blink. The added features are great on blu-ray, even including a complete recipe for the amazing dessert seen in the movie, and a very personal tour of the city with Bill Murray. This will always be near the top of my list of great movies.
Funny and gorgeous! Ever since I saw 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' on the big screen I've been eager to get my hands on a DVD copy just so I can look at it frame-by-frame. The meticulous cinematic craftsmanship that Wes Anderson puts into composing each and every shot is mind-boggling. This will be such a treat!
haven't bought the dvd yet. FABULOUS MOVIE, 1 OF MY FAVOIRITES. IF THERE WAS A POSTER I WOUL BUY IT TOO. very pretty, another excellent screenplay by mr. wes anderson.
Truthfully, I was looking for another dvd at my job to watch when I unexpectedly came across this movie. The Grand Budapest Hotel contains various action sequences that definitely keep you on the edge wanting to find out more. The front of the dvd cover has multiple famous celebrity names that are attached to this movie (Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jude Law, Owen Wilson and more names etc). The Grand Budapest Hotel opens with a popular and gifted concierge named Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes) who is shown saying farewell to a wealthy and refined older lady named Madame D who loves him very much (Tilda Swinton). Gustave H also takes a young apprentice named Zero (Tony Revolori) under his wing. Gustave’s life starts to change dramatically after Madame D dies. Clues start to abound on what Gustave could be in for once he meets Madame D’s son Dmitri. Gustave admits to Dimitri of a relationship with Madame D that was more than just friends. However, Dimitri does not offer any sympathy to Gustave and rather chastises him for his romantic preferences for both men and women (through this scene alone the movie starts to paint the emotional tension that is starting between Dimitri and Gustave). The Special Features of this dvd include Mendl’s Secret Recipe (they actually show how to make one of the dessert confections from the movie), Cast and Wes Anderson’s Featurettes, and Stills Gallery.
