It is a bizarre film. I watched it when I was bed bound with an infection and doped up on various drugs a few weeks ago, I kind of thought in my drug addled haze that I didn’t really get it. So I watched it again. And it was even better the second time. Wes Anderson hadn’t made a film in a while, his last was Fantastic Mr Fox, which I didn’t enjoy because of the Americanisation (is that a word?) of it. Before that; Life Aquatic, Royal Tenenbaums and The Darjeeling Limited.
It is a beautiful little love story, and a film I think you should enjoy this winter. If you have seen it then you will know how perfect this board is
