4.7 out of 5 stars

on 22 September 2014
Love this soundtrack to such a fabulous movie! Quite traditional and quirky sounding but that's what I like. Alexandre Desplat's work is wonderful. I already own several other soundtracks of his and he knows how to capture the essence of each film he composes for. By far this has to be my favourite soundtrack of his so far!

The best use of dulcimers since The Third Man, this score is lost beneath the endless pastels of Wes Anderson's psychedelic vision. Heard in isolation, though, it's a real revelatory delight. Recommended for anyone with any interest in traditional folk music, but especially for those classical music aficionados who occasionally indulge in the folky stuff. It's really rather brilliant.

Another delightful Wes Anderson soundtrack, well worth the purchase. A combination of French and Balkan influences with a hint of Vivaldi makes this a fantastic soundtrack in its own right, elevating what was an already fantastic film to 'best film of the year' territory.

Very original, unique and evocative. Fantastic soundtrack that really fits the visuals and story. Listening to this brings all the images from the wonderful film to mind. Strongly reccommended.

I heard one of the tracks on Classic FM, and enjoyed it so much I bought the CD. I'm glad I did - to me it's classical music with a twist. Relaxing but a little different.

Desplat's most elaborate, quirky, ingeniously orchestrated and performed score, a joyful and humorous masterpiece that blends perfectly with the source music while retaining its very distinctive musical identity !!! GODZILLA, THE IMITATION GAME & THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL the perfect Desplat sounds of 2014 !!!

Wonderful soundtrack, just makes me smile, you have to love the film to really appreciate it. Wes Anderson does everything to perfection, the devil is in the detail so the soundtracks to all his films are always truly wonderful.
