    1. Nathan "N.R." Gaddis on said:

      Allow me to say it this way; --The Grand Budapest Hotel is a better film than Inherent Vice. Qua film. That's just the odd thing isn't it. Because Inherent Vice got it all right -- literally and spiritually accurately translated onto film from the fabulous book. But it still didn't quite (somehow?) make itself into a great film. But this hotel thing I thought a good film. I have no idea about its spiritual kinship with Herr Zweig.

      Having read this then seeing the film, I was transported to another time and place. I could not help but be reminded of another hotel in Zurich that was in similar disrepair, before going public. I spent a year of my childhood living there on the side of that mountain, traversing the 90 degree angle in a strange triangular cable car. We sat in a massive dining hall, so similar to the one portrayed in the film, but not quite as pink. A 20 foot Christmas tree dominated the hall for a month with re [...]

      The film is in the upper tier of his output (along with Rushmore, Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom). It is one of the great recent cinematic statements on nostalgia and the idealized past, on creative vision colliding with the force of violence, representing perhaps the (sorry) grandest instance of Anderson's acknowledgement of reality's intrusion on the ideal and the beautiful and the meticulous. It's also one of his best films on a purely comedic level, not to mention design, storytelling, and dir [...]

    4. Ffion Snaith on said:

      Hilariously eccentric and vivid, with the screenplay allowing me to appreciate Wes Anderson's comedic brilliance (through the intricacy of his descriptions and the hysterical dialogue) which can be lost on screen. Loved the film, possibly loved this even more.

    5. Cindy on said:

      You see? There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant - (sighs deeply). Oh fuck it. M. Gustave

    6. Jazzy Lemon on said:

      A closer look into the script of the film. Some of the scenes were changed slightly before they were shot.

    7. Franc on said:

      The Grand Budapest was once a grand fin-de-siècle hotel in the Republic of Zubrowka, located like Ruritania before it, in an fictitious alpine corner of the former Austria-Hungarian Empire. The 20th Century has not been kind to the hotel, with the even the decor cycling to reflect a series of "regime changes" (Anderson's phrase) as the story moves from the 30s thru a wartime occupation and into the Communist 60s. Conducting the hotel with grace and (lots and lots) of panache is the noble concie [...]

      This story was original and hilarious. I completely recommend the movie because the director does a great job of highlighting the jokes in the screenplay. Also the movie was very artistic and beautiful. The costumes and scenery were spot on (a little silly at times, but perfect for the story).The story had a similar whimsical feel that the 100 Foot Journey had (although when the 100 foot journey crashed and burned as the novel went on, this story was memorable and hilarious). This was mainly due [...]

      This is the screenplay for the film The Grand Budapest Hotel starring sexy Ralph (pronounced the Old English way- Rafe) Fiennes as the concierge and his lobby boy who get involved in the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting between WWI and WW2. It is hilarious comedy of a sophisticated sort (NO Adam Sandler/Ben Stiller idiocy here)and watching Ralph Fiennes is always a treat for the eyes and ears. Yum.

      "A dark, woody parlor with mounted heads everywhere - lions, tigers, buffaloes, antelopes, etc. . . Every age, build, and variety of facial hair is accounted for. Some carry briefcases and canes. Most have strong drinks in their hands. There are also several young dandies; a few little old ladies; and a pair of country farmers."

    11. Yasmin on said:

      I loved this play. The film was also a great version of it. Reminded me of the great gatsby. A great mans life and how a young boy sees it all. I think this never gets old. Now if someone wants to give me a present, it can be an english version of this book :))

    12. Raphael Lindtburgh on said:

      Total verspielter Stil. Ich weiß noch als ich den Film zum ersten Mal sah und mich das Teppichmuster im Grand Hotel, das aus der Vogelperspektive gezeigt wird, total begeistert hat. Ein toller Film. Wen übrigens die 1920er interessieren, der kann auch mal beim Buch das Schweigen des Lichtes von Niel Flemming reinschauen. Ist natürlich was anderes aber der gelesene Bildstil im Buch erinnert mich an Grand Budapest Hotel.

      Just recently, ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ has been a big movie so I’ve heard. My Nan went to see the film when it was in cinemas and enjoyed it so much that she bought me the screenplay for my birthday, seeing as I’m not a big film nut.All I knew going into this screenplay was that it was a quirky story, but I’d caught snippets of the preview when they were advertising it on the TV and it looked funny enough. Plus, I like Ralph Fiennes and Saoirse Ronan. My first impression after finis [...]

      The Grand Budapest Hotel is one of my favorite movies. I love it not only because of how well directed it is (the movie is gorgeous!) but I also adore the writing. I find that when I watch movies I don't always catch every line, so I really like reading screenplays to know exactly what the characters said. Wes Anderson's writing is so amazing, and I laughed and cried exactly as I did while watching the movie. I think I'd almost die of joy if he ever wrote a novel. I wouldn't recommend this to an [...]

      Well, I'm glad I didn't buy this book. I was at a friend's house, choosing books from his library to borrow, when I saw this one. It's not a big book and since I hadn't seen the movie I thought the screenplay will do. Unfortunately, I found it to be boring (and a little melancholic) since the very beginning. I thought that maybe this is not a book for me. It's supposed to be funny or comical but maybe I missed something. It only become interesting to me when I reached the main part of the screen [...]

      I've read this movie script mainly because I've expected to watch the movie inspired by it. I have to say that both the script and the movie were cute and accurately conceived, but the creators'inventiveness hasn't appealed or convinced me too much.The characters were stereotyped and quite unsurprising, like the plot and the settings, quite refined but still not impressive or unforgettable. The famous "Grand Budapest Hotel" was put aside and almost repaid with no attention at all, like the story [...]

    17. Chris on said:

      I found the film to be very funny, creative, moving and above all, memorable. The book is all these things too. I was surprised as often when you read screenplays you get the extra benefit of seeing all the dialogue they removed from the script during editing etc but I found the finished film product was remarkably similar to the screenplay with barely anything changed or taken out (that I noticed after one viewing anyway)The book (and the film) are a wonderful rip roaring adventure and tale of [...]

      At first I was unsure how reading a screen play would work for me. If you have seen the movie, the pictures will form in your mind as you read this. Such a simple and fun movie/screen play for me and I enjoyed it very much.

    19. Bettie☯ on said:

      Will watch the film but not bother with the words so much:'Wes Andersen’s very entertaining but, according to my humble opinion, overly cheerful, American and distortedly unrealistic take on Zweig’s Central Europe in The Grand Budapest Hotel. - Literalab

    20. Brendan O'Meara on said:

      Nobody writes a better comedy than Wes Anderson and his M. Gustave H. may just be his finest character in Anderson's canon.
