Présentation de l'éditeur
Wes Anderson's eighth feature film, a meticulously crafted, visually resplendent matryoshka-doll caper set primarily in an alternate-history version of 1930s Europe, The Grand Budapest Hotel is, perhaps, the fullest expression to date of Anderson's varied thematic and stylistic idiosyncrasies, influences, and obsessions. This supplemental one-volume companion to The Wes Anderson Collection (Abrams 2013) is the only book to take readers behind the scenes of The Grand Budapest Hotel with in-depth interviews between Anderson and cultural critic and New York Times bestselling author Matt Zoller Seitz.
Anderson shares the story behind the film's conception, the wide variety of sources that inspired it--from author Stefan Zweig to filmmaker Ernst Lubitsch to Photochrom landscapes from turn-of-the-century Middle Europe--personal anecdotes about the making of the film, and many other reflections on his filmmaking process. These interviews will be accompanied by behind-the-scenes photos, ephemera, and artwork.
The Grand Budapest Hotel has received nine Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture, Directing, and Writing - Original Screenplay; Best Film - Musical or Comedy, Golden Globe Awards; Best Screenplay, NYFCC and LAFCA Awards

The book is divided into three sections, "The Idea of Europe", "The Snow-Globe Version" and the "At The Algonquin Hotel". Each section begins with an interview of Wes Anderson by Matt Zoller Seitz. The first interview concentrates on the characters and the actors, the second on the making of the film and the third on the sources of the film, in particular the works of author Stefan Zweig. That said, many other subjects also come up in the three interviews. They make for interesting reading.
There are also interviews of Ralph Fiennes, who played Gutave H. the main character in the movie, cinematographer Robert Yeoman, Production Designer Adam Stockhausen, Costume Designer Milena Canonero and several others. Each one of these are interesting to read and we learns more about Anderson's well thought out meticulous style and manner of working.
Interspersed are many photographs from the film as well as reference photographs from other films such as "The Shop Around the Corner", "Amadeus", "The Red Shoes" and many others. There are vignettes of the careers of Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Goldblum and other actors. There is a whole section on the role of the narrator in this and other films such as "Barry Lyndon", "A Clockwork Orange" and "The Big Lebowski". There are also some pages of the script, the building of the model of the Hotel, excerpts from the writings of Stefan Zweig and most fascinating to me how certain scenes were shot. In short this is a gold mine of information about the film.
A well written and informative essay by Ali Arikan "Worlds of Yesterday" offers one of the most interesting interpretations of the film I have read, and of its structure and meaning.
The book is well printed and bound as books published by Abrams usually are!
My guess is that you will do what I did when I finished the book and that is to watch the movie again.
Through a series of interviews, short essays and excerpts, Seitz brings together a collage of the sources, inspiration, and methods used by Wes Anderson to create the film The Grand Budapest Hotel. As in real life, the film mixes up tragic and comic elements.
The mood is one of a lost world, but how grand to actually have something you would regret losing, even if it is an imagined civilization. How is this beautiful world and its loss brought to the screen? Seitz explains technical details, such as adapting narrative devices from Stefan Zweig's fiction to the big screen. In fact he revels in details such as sourcing the facecloth used in the costumes, or aspect ratios. And he provides lots of information about locations and sets. While Anderson in his interviews speaks freely about complex logistics, he is unwilling to name the real-life inspiration for Gustave himself, just that there is one.
I also found the interview with actor Ralph Fiennes, who brings the enigmatic concierge Gustave to life, charming but rather opaque; Fiennes is like a magician who doesn't want to reveal his tricks. Seitz compensates for these gaps by placing the GBH in the context of film history, referencing influences on Anderson from Ernst Lubitsch to Stanley Kubrick and on to Werner Herzog. One real joy is the interview with composer Alexandre Desplat, who is able to articulate the way the music is composed to support to shifting moods in the film. There are excerpts from Zweig's writings, but they are best read in their entirety. As one would expect from a publisher as visually savvy as Abrams, the color plates are stunning, providing a chance to notice fine touches that go by too fast on the screen to properly appreciate. There are photos of the sets and how they are used in filming GBH, all arranged on the page to jolt the eye with the contrast between illusion and how it is created, like the ending of the wizard of oz.
