Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


In fact, it’s a little difficult to understand Budapest Hotel, because it’s really too European. However, if you don’t understand, you just don’t understand. Don’t talk about things and pretend to force laughter to mislead the masses. If you’ve had enough, you should have something practical. I know that if I spray first, people will inevitably be sprayed, but even if I meet a friend who can understand these words in sharing, I will die without regret.

In addition to paying tribute to the master, the whole film is metaphorical. It is too superficial to simply classify it as comedy, suspense, adventure and plot. In fact, it’s more like a documentary or literary film. The documentary records the classic film techniques left by Liu bieqian, Hitchcock and Zhuo Berlin. The literary and artistic film is the spiritual connotation of the decline of European civilization.

To understand its cultural background, we have to mention two people – Walter Benjamin and Stephen Zweig.

Zweig’s resume is too long. Pick a few simple and crucial features: he is an Austrian exile writer, a Jew and a defender of European traditional culture. He was persecuted by Nazi Germany and finally committed suicide in Brazil. Budapest hotel is actually about the decline history of traditional European civilization. Specifically, it is about the exile history of Jews. More specifically, it is about Zweig’s Autobiography of leaving his declining spiritual home and dying of heartbreak.

Walter Benjamin, German, the most important philosopher and critic in the 20th century, “the last literati in Europe”, an exiled writer, was persecuted by Nazi Germany and finally committed suicide in Spain. I don’t know why he is important, but in European liberal arts academia, he is always regarded as a great God anyway. Benjamin lamented the demise of traditional storytelling technology in the Storyteller – Memoirs of Nikolay Leskov’s works. Budapest hotel uses a four story structure, which always presents an immersive story telling process. A story is inseparable from a storyteller and a listener, as well as their environment at the same time. This is a tribute to Benjamin’s thought.

In the 1930s, with the deepening of industrialization, world war and the rise of Nazis, everything related to humanistic care, humanitarian care and practical care declined rapidly, and things with rational, centralized power, modernization and fast food were rising. Europe, a land with deep cultural heritage, was ravaged by iron hooves and raped spiritually. It was developed and improved materially, but the tradition disappeared and lost, Human nature is also indifferent. People are used to following suit and no longer appreciate literature and art, let alone think and explore. This directly leads to a gorgeous speech, which can let countless fanatical believers go to the battlefield, and also leads to the heartache of those writers with conscience. The suicide of Benjamin and Zweig is a kind of martyrdom. But in the war years, these people still want to keep writing, lament and commit suicide, which is great. Sometimes we lament that we can’t find something deep. We can’t just blame the author and system, but the nutrients and force of the whole soil are not enough, and then we don’t seek a deep understanding. Take director Zhang Feng as an example. You can’t understand when shooting professionally. There is no box office. When shooting is simple, you say people are vulgar. However, I still have to worship the masterpieces of the three great gods Jiang Wen, Lu Chuan and Ning Hao. People have learned to play the edge ball that gives you a little knowledge.

In the era of novels, newspapers, telephones, telegrams and television, the relationship between people has been replaced by the media. People hide themselves behind microphones and communication has been reduced. Compared with the communication mode and environment of myths, epics and fairy tales, the reality that writers and listeners gathered together to tell stories has been changed. In the past, a story needs to be gathered together and spread by mouth. This process needs to integrate the common experience of storytellers and listeners. In the modern world, an isolated writer, In his isolated attic, there are no emotional mass-produced works to meet the needs of a group. Practical care gradually disappeared. With the disappearance of practical care, the spiritual pillar of European culture collapsed.

The name “cloth” is actually misleading. It makes people think that the story takes place in Hungary. Although the Hungarian hotel industry is very developed, 10000 forlin can rent a villa to live in, but “cloth” has nothing to do with Hungary. The film was shot in Germany and the original metaphor was in Austria. Austria, little Paris, the heart of European culture and art, the cradle of European spirit and thought, and the place where Hitler killed and burned books and scholars in “crystal night”. The scene of the story is the writer Zweig’s own country. There is circumstantial evidence that the policeman played by Edward Norton wears neither Hungarian nor German uniforms, but the holster, strap, chest strategy and shoulder badge are German. The rifle used by the guard is Mauser 98K, and the barrel hat is the tradition of Prussian soldiers. Making a fox on it is purely cute. Later, when the war broke out and the border was closed, the soldiers who got on the train for inspection were all German SS equipment. The mountain shaped double button hat and the hat emblem were II. In reality, this II was embroidered on the collars of middle and lower level officers of the German national defense force. After occupying the hotel, only the Nazis had the habit of hanging a huge national flag and armbands. In the film, the flag and armbands are ZZ patterns, and the Nazis are SS or swastika. According to Hitler’s own interpretation, SS and swastika are double lightning. Isn’t ZZ a more direct metaphor for double lightning? The director can directly hang the swastika flag, but he doesn’t do so. He can write the Vienna hotel or the bethst gaden Hotel, but he has to move to Budapest. This is to cover up.

Gustav, the lobby manager in the film, is a dark blonde, welcomed by elderly and sensitive customers, and satisfies their roles with his clever tongue and body. Gustav himself also said that he may be bisexual, which also implies that his work is to meet everyone’s spiritual needs. The object of his satisfaction is the elite aristocracy of this society. This is actually Zweig’s self portrait. Before World War II, Zweig was a popular writer among the Austrian people. His works have deep practical humanitarian care. The so-called care, in short, has a very positive interaction with society and tradition. This cultural interaction is reflected in the film in a vulgar way that can be understood and accepted by all. It is vulgar and elegant, which is also the best embodiment of practical care and humanitarian care.

“Apple boy” is defined as a priceless painting that caused Gustav’s death. This painting is a legacy, a wealth left to Gustav by the European aristocracy, which was obtained by his meticulous, considerate and enthusiastic service labor. Apple is the fruit of desire and forbidden fruit in the Bible, and it also means return of labor in European languages. The metaphor of this painting is to express that the whole Jewish nation has carefully calculated and achieved the best of both worlds, scattered from Jerusalem to the world, and gradually inherited the material and spiritual wealth of Europe, which they deserve. At this moment, the son and family of the deceased stand up. A pragmatist who only cares about wealth and arranges the inheritance for many days, only to find that the painting has been lost. He is tyrannical, crazy and rude. He ignores the law and contract, modifies the will, murders lawyers and chases witnesses, but he has abnormal attachment to the inheritance. Is this like Hitler? As the successor of the same culture, he wanted to possess all the heritage of his ancestors, but he did not inherit its essence at all. At the same time, he tore up the armistice treaty, became militaristic and slaughtered Jews

After stealing the painting, Gustav once told zero on the train that I would die under the painting. Can you see how much I look like the boy in the painting? This is not a joke, but the director’s hint that Gustav himself is a Jew, and apple is his inheritance and wealth. However, minutes and seconds later, he said, I am considering selling this painting, which is a true portrayal of the Jewish nation. From exodus to Schindler’s list, it shows the suffering reality that the Jewish nation is too smart and rich and is excluded from the world. Wealth brings jealousy and persecution, making them insecure and running away all the time.

The chapter of cross key association is very interesting. Gustav made a phone call and hotel colleagues all over the world came to help him at all costs for the first time. This has to remind people of the Rose Cross Association, Jiashan hermit Association and so on. They are all secret associations, widely distributed, capable and responsive among internal members. This is a typical Jewish Association. This chapter describes that Zweig was persecuted by the Nazis and helped by his compatriots on his way to escape, and it is also the reason why Jews continue to grow.

In reality, Zweig committed suicide in Brazil. However, in the film, Gustav denounced the Nazis on the train and was shot in the cold wasteland. Zweig and the Nazis fought all their lives. He didn’t want to stand up and fight them to the end. But in reality, he didn’t have the courage to do so. The film is different. There are inheritors and witnesses zero. Gustav wanted to protect and continue this seed and gave his life. Perhaps this is the most ideal ending for Zweig after artistic processing.

The Dmitri’s thug is a big, quiet, cruel and loyal man. His dramatic image is like frankstein or the steel teeth in 007. His play has only one content – chasing and killing, killing without blood. It was not until the last scene of the sledge chasing the car that people thought of the starting point. He stopped the motorcycle, put up the sledge and stood in place in an almost military manner to drink whisky. Leather clothes, military posture, killing without blinking an eye, foolish loyalty, terror and not using your head to execute orders are the portraits of the German army, especially the SS or the Gestapo.

Gustav, who was dying on the cliff, said, “you pathetic freak”, “the Mauser gun Kata was loaded, and the officers shouted with joy.” this is about the German soldiers. Otherwise, why didn’t he say that China was officially loaded, colt or eight big gaikata was loaded?

In the last chapter, people can’t help laughing at the gunfight in the hotel. We can see the metaphor from everyone’s appearance order, standing position and hand-held weapons. At first, Dmitri rushed upstairs, saw Gustav and zero, and then gave a frontal shot. Wearing a black windbreaker and a pair of lightning cuffs on his wrist, Dmitri shouted in a very arrogant manner, “where is the apple boy”? Does this look like Hitler’s clamor in the 1930s? Then Gustav said, “don’t worry about you.” so Dmitri said I’ll beat you to pieces. He took out a gun from the soles of his feet. At this time, he gave a close-up of the four movements of drawing, loading, raising and shooting, emphasizing that it was a PPK. The PPK of Carl Walter Arsenal (Carl bilser) It is the most famous and advanced pistol in World War II. After the Nazi Party won power in 1931, because the gun is light and small, easy to carry and excellent performance, this type of pistol is mainly distributed to senior generals, non combat staff officers, protocol, Gestapo, etc.

Next is the weapons Expo. A weapon represents a country or a camp.
