Zero: What happened?
M. Gustave: What happened, my dear Zero, is I beat the living shit out of a sniveling little runt called Pinky Bandinski, who had the gall to question my virility. Because, if there’s one thing we’ve learned from penny dreadfuls, it’s that when you find yourself in a place like this, you must never be a candy ass; you’ve got to prove yourself from day one. You’ve got to win their respect. You should take a long look at HIS ugly mug this morning… He’s actually become a dear friend.

Starring: Ralph Fiennes as M. Gustave, Tony Revolori as Zero, Saoirse Ronan as Agatha, Adrien Brody as Dmitri, Edward Norton as Henckels and Jeff Goldblum as Kovacs, dir. Wes Anderson.

  1. I adoOooOored this film… but in comparison, not Moonrise Kingdom as much. I found it rather dull and droning. But I learnt about the Alex Colville reference in the film only after I visited his AGO exhibit, so maybe I missed a lot of other details? :S

    • Ha! I saw Moonrise ages ago but I can see where you’d think of it as dull and droning. I am also not the biggest Bruce Willis fan so that probably added onto any dislike I have for the film… Budapest, meanwhile, is one of my favourite Anderson films (if not, my #1 favourite of his).
