The Grand Budapest Hotel - 歡迎來到布達佩斯大飯店

The Grand Budapest Hotel (歡迎來到布達佩斯大飯店) is an 2014 film. The movie stars Ralph Fiennes. After that, there's a huge list of supporting people. The film is directed and written by Wes Anderson

Ralph Riennes plays the head concierge of The Grand Budapest Hotel. The story is told through the eyes of a writer in 1985 of a 1968 trip. On that 1968, he finds out about how The Grand Budapest Hotel was in 1932 and how it is what it is now. Back in 1932, The Grand Budapest Hotel was popular destination in the fictional European country is it in. The plight for which how current owner came to own The Grand Budapest Hotel is quite an extraordinary one at that.

This movie is pretty awesome. I first caught it via Blu-ray and at various other times when it was shown on HBO. I must admit that I almost always watch a few segments here and there. No matter the place in the film, I get caught up in it. The story is super hard to describe or even lay out. They are in a fictional country and other fictional type elements, but it is based in Europe in 1932 so it has a very familiar feel. Yet it looks like a bygone era just out of reach.

If you want a quarky movie with lots of interesting elements and a intriguing story, look no further than The Grand Budapest Hotel.
