I think I have done about 10 films that have shot within one minute or five minutes of where I live in Hong Kong. That is why I can’t leave, that is why I have to stay there. Chungking Express is actually shot in my apartment. […] The bloody film was shot in my bloody apartment! (laughs) I should’ve stayed in a hotel. I’d be working all day and sleeping on the floor at night. We couldn’t mess up the set. The film’s very special in that way given the connection to my personal life…

The interesting thing is after the film—I guess it was the Hong Kong tourist board put out a map of film locations—for three of four years there’d be people following this map to my door. Especially Japanese tourists for some reason. They’d go on the escalator and look for the apartment. So, I’d be going off to work or to a bar and there’d be people waiting downstairs. Once I found kids literally on my doorstep wanting to go in.

Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like.

"People often criticize my films for being pessimistic. There are certainly plenty of reasons for being pessimistic, but I don’t see my films that way. They are founded in the belief that revolution doesn’t belong on the cinema screen, but outside, in the world. When I show people, on the screen, the ways that things can go wrong, my aim is to warn them that this is the way things will go if they don’t change their lives. Never mind if a film ends pessimistically, if it exposes certain mechanisms clearly enough to show people how exactly they work, then the ultimate effect is not pessimistic. I never try to reproduce reality in a film. My goal is to reveal such mechanisms in a way that makes people realize the necessity of changing their own reality." — Rainer Werner Fassbinder

Above: Hotel Börse in Görlitz, Germany. Below: The Grand Budapest Hotel.

To create the Eastern European feel of Zubrowka, Anderson headed to Görlitz, the easternmost town in Germany and no stranger to the big screen. It has also been used as the backdrop in Inglorious Bastards and The Book Thief.

The cast and crew checked into the real Hotel Börse in Untermarkt while turning the once glamorous Görlitzer Warenhaus department store building into the Grand Budapest Hotel for the movie. (via)
