The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Wes Anderson cult director returns. Unlike previous Wes Anderson movies, The Grand Budapest Hotel is an assumed comedy, from start to finish, even if decorated with some back to reality notes. The movie feels like a very good taste unstoppable british sketch comedy. It's full of charm and picturesque characters and scenarios, that will leave the audience delighted for sure. It is a pure joy to watch. The movie's rhythm  is fast, maybe too fast. It doesn't let you flavour the scenes calmly, but that is both negative and positive. Another detail that spoils the movie is the excess of cameos from famous actors. It is funny, yes, but sometimes is a bit arrogant. Introducing Owen Wilson to interpret a character that appears for 10 seconds with one line is a bit unnecessary. On the other hand, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum and specially Ralph Fiennes portray wonderful rich characters that will leave you laughing on the floor. The Grand Budapest writing is wonderful, well tasted and charming. It is both exotic, eloquent and capable of transporting its audience to a masterfully crafted world of illusion based on historical reality. Some may say this is Anderson's best movie. I'm not sure about that, but it is not at all unreasonable to sustain.
