Hotel Chevalier

Released: 2007

Genre: Drama

Runtime: 13 min

MPAA Rating: R

Director: Wes Anderson

Starring: Jason Schwartzman, Natalie Portman, Michael Castejon

A couple tries to reconcile their breakup.

Wes Anderson's best film since Rushmore.

Review by: MiamiMovieCritic

Added: 1 decade ago

Wes Anderson's best film since Rushmore is a 13-minute short starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman. Available on the otherwise worthless Darjeeling Limited DVD, Hotel Chevalier features one of the most romantic songs in the world, "Where Do You Got to (My Lovely)" by Peter Sarstedt, and Natalie's first-ever nude scene. Need I say more?

This is a filmmaker whose work has become hopelessly ironic, but in bite-size form he seems capable of shedding the highly affected cool factor and actually getting down to the business of telling a story. This one concerns the aftermath of a breakup, and it’s terribly funny as Schwartzman tries to make his former g.f. listen to a song that expresses how he feels. Natalie seems to grow more devastating with each passing film, and the way Anderson films her in the buff is… well, just say it’s one of the most beautiful things since Keira Knightley got naked in The Hole.

Again, Darjeeling Limited isn’t worth your time or money. Your best bet is to find a used copy of the DVD for $2, or go looking for Hotel Chevalier online.
