    His (Anderson) abiding love for a vanished past, real and imagined, is at the core of The Grand Budapest Hotel. The thrill comes in watching as this rare talent gives his movie wings. show more

    That perception of Fiennes and Gustave is central to the whole enterprise. Without it, the movie just breaks off and flies away. But with it, The Grand Budapest Hotel becomes something wonderful. show more

    Reminiscent of an old Zero Mostel comedy. I've never been a fan of Zero Mostel comedies; way too silly. I was disappointed.

    A work of Art. Once upon a time movies were made without effects or affects. This film stands on writing, good directing, perfect actor character matching, and real acting. Ralph Fennes is Gustav. Presented as a "we just happened to have filmed a story in the unfolding". Will stand as a Classic
