A good movie

To be honest, even though I did like all the movies I have seen directed by Wes Anderson, so far, most of them actually didn’t really blow me away(I did change though from 'Fantastic Mr Fox' which I really loved and all the movies he made afterwards were really awesome) . Still, the guy has a very interesting directing style so I watched all his movies with great interest. Concerning our main feature, exactly like the rest of his work, I thought it was pretty neat but I didn't think it was great. Before watching the damning thing, I even watched 'Hotel Chevalier' which worked pretty well as a companion piece but I thought it was in fact rather misleading. Indeed, to the contrary to the other brothers, they gave us a backstory for Jack and it gave the feeling that he would be the main protagonist when it was not the case. Anyway, the cast was pretty good, I enjoyed the music and India seemed to be an enchanting country. Once again, it was dealing with a dysfunctional familly (another Wes Anderson Trademark) and even though I enjoyed those excentric characters, the story was just decent enough but still nothing really spellbinding. It was also rather corny that they got close with each other towards the end. Still, to conclude, even though it was not a masterpiece, I enjoyed the damned thing and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Wes Anderson's work.
