5.0 out of 5 stars Off the beaten track..., 8 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Grand Budapest Hotel [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this film on the big screen, where I have to say it was very much at home. It has an "expansive" feel to it.
Ralph Fiennes judged the main character well and kept a fine balance between dignity, comedy and frenzied desperation while Tony Revolori as Zero, the Grand Hotel's lobby boy was a creditable supporter.
GBH really is a movie buff's movie. It's fun spotting the faces, and it must have been fun filming the cameos. Certainly, it's fun watching them.
It's probably also a "Marzipan" film, in that people will either love it or loath it. Time will tell.
Me, I liked it more than most I've seen recently. Definitely one for my library.

Definitely agree with your love it or hate it point.
For me, I found the film mostly surreal, but always in a good way. The visuals were stunning, the comedy was good, and the casting/acting was spot on. Out of all the films i've seen recently, this is one of a few movies that really stood out from the rest for daring to be different & I shall definitely be picking it up when it's released.
