into surrealism and dadaism, but I think that gets overshadowed by me watching like 10 bad German comedies a month.
My roommate forced me to watch this, saying that a film student shouldn‘t miss out on this quintessential piece of chick-flick-cinema.
Even though I could rant about the gender roles in this movie pretty extensively...
damn, she was kinda right! It‘s just way more fun than it has any right to be.
It’s kinda obligatory for a (female-ish) film fan to have been obsessed with Wes Anderson at some point of your life. I had this phase when I was 14 (actually, this movie got me into film by awakening my interest for color design and cinematography) and honestly, after a rewatch- there are worse things to be into as a young teen. I could talk at length about this movie‘s flaws, but nostalgia prevents me from doing so.
I also completely forgot that Tilda Swinton was in this, but I‘m always here for a pleasant surprise.
