The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Zero Moustafa recounts his story of Gustave , the legendary concierge of the once elegant Grand Budapest Hotel as well as his own ventures as the hotel’s Lobby Boy. During Gustave’s notorious escapades with hotel guests, particularly a liaison with Madame D., and the onset of World War II, he finds that his truest friend and confidant is none other than his “lobby boy”. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for whiles watching “The Grand Budapest Hotel”.

∙ Agatha and Zero are in her bedroom on the top floor of the house. In the right side view of Agatha when they’re talking, her nightgown strap is down on her right arm. When it cuts to a front view of her when she says “you steal art”, the strap is up, on her shoulder. It’s down on her arm again in the next right side view of her.

∙ Gustave and his pals escape from prison and Zero is waiting for them when they finally break out. In the front view of Zero, when he’s talking to Gustave, the strap of the satchel he’s carrying is hanging straight down from his left shoulder. The scene cuts to a close-up view of him when he says “the war” and the strap is diagonal and cuts across his chest. The location of the strap then alternates back and forth between hanging from his shoulder in views of him and Gustave together, to being diagonal in close-up views.

∙ Jopling stops for gas in the Demote Foothills. During the scene, the Fuelitz calendar behind him shows October 1932. The Sundays on the calendar are highlighted as being on the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th. But the Sundays in October 1932 actually ran on the 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th. (The Sundays, however, do coincide with November 1933.)
