I've decide to bought the really big poster of the film before seeing anything of the movie. Just because the Hotel look totally awesome and surreal. I put it right in the top of my bed head. It's Majestic.
The weirdest thing I find about this movie, while a family dinner I told my cousin that I wanted to see it and the first thing they told me is "this movie really rule the communication" and that's right. There were poster all over bus's stop in Nantes and so on. And even now 7 weeks after, it's still diffused in some cinema. Anyway.
After a little research you can actually find that "The Republic of Zubrowka" nor "The Grand Budapest hotel" does really exist (woooow what a news).
But it's really inspired by "the spa city
None of the movie happen there but it was apparently a great source of
inspiration for Wes Anderson.
Many scenes of the movie were shot in a studio with a green background and weird shaped place for more camera possibility. I just find it crazyly interesting.
There is a big thing in this movie about Mendl's pastry (that doesn't either exist ). Anyway many people tries to make theire own kind of Mendl's "Religieuses":
I guess there are the one that look the most like the movie, if it doesn't come from the actual movie.
I Guess I'll try too. but anyway here a like for a tutorial of thoses, and even a tutorial to make Mendl's Van shaped cookies.
Ho and about the famous pain of the movie, Michael Taylor paint it for the movie. It was inspired by Renaissances's paint style.
