I personally like the style of Wes Anderson. Something that became even more evident for me in this film is how greatly influenced he is by the slapstick silent comedies.

A lot of visual gags in the movie draw upon this silent movie comedy cinema as far to rythm, editing and even by resorting to simulate “old school” special effects like using miniatures.

Anderson’s failed-burocratic-family-nucleus never felt more in place than in a fading western european country at the brink of World War 2.

obs.: What I missed was further development of Mr. Moustafa story and who knows maybe this is the dawn of a new series of personage like Tenenbauns,Hotel Chevalier & Darjeeling Limited?
