Castello Cavalcanti

This short-film-advert, made by Wes Anderson for Prada, was quite the sensation when it was released in November 2013. It’s classic Wes Anderson, although there are nods to Italian cinema in there too. Love how much the bold use of colour stands out in this, feels somewhat emphasised by the length of the piece. The vintage touches made to set the film in 1955 are all beautifully done, and the setting really suits his style.

It’s made me want to see the marvellous Grand Budapest Hotel again.
