Quintessential Wes Anderson, at the same time going farther, to be quirkier and more fun than ever. Loved every minute! Ralph Fiennes is charming, and Willem Dafoe is characteristically excellent. A top notch entertainment!

This is a fun, acerbic take on a mythical past left us by the bygone era of the Hapsburg empire, the super wealth of that time and the falling into war while asleep of the same era. It is fun, sad and terrific, all at the same time. Great movie, Wes Anderson. thank you.

The whimsical approach to a rather deep plot line, filled with humor and fun, yet reflecting a hard time in human history, was put together with amazing writing and directing. This movie had your attention from start to finish. When you are not lost in the metaphorical humor and satire of the dialogue, you are captured by the the creative and heavily artistic cinematography. I held in my urge to sprint to the bathroom the last portions of the movie because I did not want to miss a moment.
A must see.

It's "Fargo" meets "Fawlty Towers" - Deadpan humor - witty but quite violent in a couple scenes.
The sets and landscapes were awesome! You really thought you were there!
It's one of those movies were you shake your head sometimes because you're not sure you "get it" but it moves so fast, it doesn't matter.
I'm betting this is either going to be a big hit with the masses and/or have a huge cult following!
Loved it - you should go see it!!!!

Tight writing, wonderful actors, and exquisitely composed shots combine in this hilarious, super-serious parody of just about everything. It uncannily seems to reference even the Winter Olympics and Russia's invasion of Crimea. Brilliant, campy, beautiful.
