Posted March 9, 2014 by Rick in Movie News

You know a movie is really good when only watching its trailer can give you an incredible desire to know it all. That’s the kind of feeling I got when watching The Grand Budapest Hotel trailer. Instantly, it makes you want to know things about the main hero, about the story plot, about everything that happens in front of your eyes.

Directed by the great Wes Anderson, this new movie comes to tell a beautiful story about the adventures of one very interesting man. His name is Gustave and he is the last concierge of this very famous European hotel. Together with the lobby boy of the hotel, he gets into some big troubles, being accused of murder. Gustave has a very special relationship with the old ladies who visit the Grand Budapest. So, when one of them dies and leaves a very expensive Renaissance painting to Gustave, her family thinks that he is the one who killed her. He now has to prove he is innocent and fight for what is his. His little helper is Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy. Together they develop a beautiful friendship based on trust.

The movie also shows us a beautiful love affair between Zero and a girl named Agatha. These two are falling wildly in love with each other, and there is no more beautiful thing to witness than their little games full of romance. Also, it is important to mention that it is all happening between the First and the Second World War. This movie is classy, funny and dramatically bittersweet.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a movie of great actors. The leading role is played by the very talented Ralph Fiennes and Zero is played by the young but very skilled Tony Revolori. The cast, as you see is amazing and it is also starring Bill Murray, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, F.Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson and many others.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a movie of contrasts. Watching it will make you feel different emotions. One second you’ll laugh, another you’ll worry for our main hero. This year this movie may win not only some hearts, but also big awards.
