Hotel Chevalier (2007)

Day 7a: Forgotten 

Hotel Chevalier, Wes Anderson

I guess for everyone there must be someone who have entered their lives that they can’t get over, wouldn’t like to get over even if they could because in an imaginary world they would dream that with that person they could just live the way they wanted to – and if they are honest enough, another part will tell them that that would never happen – that they are not for each other at all and that them not being over each other is just a pointless waste of time. Isn’t that what love is anyway? Is it not?

HC is Wes Anderson’s expression on those and more with a pinch of yellow, Peter Sarstedt and a feeling of not having time for each other in 13 minutes. This short is also Part 1 of Darjeeling Ltd., his feature film that takes place in a train journey in India.  

What makes it a great short film: creates a deeper and greater meaning for the feature, one extra bite of a delicious meal with a different flavor. It serves a purpose and connects to the core of the story.
