Along with directing his upcoming film “The Darjeeling Limited”, Wes Anderson has been directed a prequel short entitled “Hotel Chevalier” starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman (who also star in the full length feature. Natalie Portman is also reported to be featured nude which has been said about many of her recent movies to much despair (all talk, nothing shown and then said to be on the cutting room floor and then said to be destroyed). This shot is very awesome, due to its beautiful imagery that looks like Anderson meets Godard. I really hope I get to see this, and I really hope that TDL reviews that are coming out of the Venice Film Festival are not a forecast of the film (they hated it).
Here’s an image from the short:
