Tonight, I spent a magical 100 minutes at the Marcus North Shore Cinema. The Grand Budapest Hotel is the story of concierge Gustave H and lobby boy Zero Moustafa. Zero acts as Gustave H’s protege and trusted friend as the two of them go through their intriguing adventure. The story is presented as a factual tale that is told third-hand. As such, the visuals are exaggerated in entertaining and delightful ways.
The mixture of the absurdness and interesting / likable characters made for an excellent mix. This was one of my most favorite movies in a while. I look forward to buying it on Amazon VOD, in the future.
