Anderson and longtime collaborator Hugo Guinness concocted The Grand Budapest Hotel as a fragmented tale following a character inspired by a mutual friend. They initially struggled to develop their idea further, but the experience touring Europe and researching literature by Austrian novelist Stefan Zweig shaped their ambitions for The Grand Budapest Hotel. The film also draws from Europe-set mid-century Hollywood films and the Library of Congress’s photocrom print collection of alpine resorts for visual motifs. Principal photography took place in eastern Germany, consuming a ten-week period from January to March 2013. French composer Alexandre Desplat provided The Grand Budapest Hotel’s music, an ambient symphonic score that expands upon the sounds and instrumentation of his early work with Anderson.
The Grand Budapest Hotel premiered in competition at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival on February 6, 2014. The French theatrical release preceded the film’s global rollout on February 26, followed by general releases in Germany, North America and the United Kingdom on March 6–7. It received highly positive reviews from the media and was cited as one of the strongest films of the year. BBC chose The Grand Budapest Hotel as one of the greatest films of the twenty-first century. The film earned $173 million in box office revenue worldwide, bolstered by fatiguing interest in resurgent studio films hoping to capitalize on award prestige and good word-of-mouth support from a younger, casual audience. It lead the 87th Academy Awards season with nine nominations, and won several other honors chiefly for writing and technical achievement.
