The Grand Budapest Hotel | Ratings & Reviews

"Set to be Wes Anderson’s highest-earning film, The Grand Budapest Hotel follows on the heels of the also successful Moonrise Kingdom in matching his now-familiar odd-bod aesthetic with a mainstream audience. But where Moonrise was awash with wistful nostalgia in its take on adolescence, romance and scouting, Anderson’s latest mines its period setting in service of a broadly comical tale which enjoys frequent diversions into both black and off-colour humour even as a body count amasses and the Second World War threatens to intrude on the borders of the titular hotel’s fictitious homeland."

"A captivating 1930s-set caper… offers a vibrant and imaginative evocation of a bygone era."


"Like the eye-catching cakes Agatha makes, Anderson’s eighth feature has a heft beneath its icing, heart behind its artifice. Check in, and you won’t want to leave."

Total FilmTotal Film

"There’s nothing like the glow of a truly great film—and this could be Wes Anderson’s keeper—to trigger some niggling reservations."

Time OutTime Out

"I found myself not only charmed and touched but also moved to a new level of respect."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"A nimblefooted, witty piece, but one also imbued with a premonitory sadness at the coming conflagration [World War II]."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"An idiosyncratic period comedy that will delight connoisseurs more than the wide public."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Another meticulously stylish and deadpan Wes Anderson movie that walks the fine line between masterpiece and folly."
