Despite the title, this is a confidently and unquestionably American film about the irretrievable and sadly long-lost beauties of the ‘good old days’: mildly nostalgic, a touch melancholic. Just as in virtually all Wes Anderson works, here too it is about a hero seeking his father (who has lost his real father) who grows into a man in the course of the search for his father. The none-too-complicated plot itself, which concerns the concierge and a bellhop getting tangled up in the theft of a work of art, references genres popular decades earlier, although as we are accustomed to with films by this director, the storyline is not the point, rather the images: virtually every setting, nearly every single frame – for the most part structured on symmetry, coolly refined and worked out to the smallest detail – could be sold as a postcard.
