Die erste Woche des Vegan Month of Food ist vorbei und ich habe es tatsächlich geschafft, alle meine Beiträge fernzusteuern. Wir waren nämlich im Urlaub und die erste Woche musste deshalb schon im August eigetütet und verbloggt werden. Heute brauche ich etwas Urlaub vom Urlaub und daher fällt der Eintrag auf Deutsch aus. Ich will nicht zu viel versprechen, aber vielleicht geht es morgen wieder zweisprachuig weiter. (Ich werde auf der deutschen Seite wohl öfter eine Pause einlegen. Sie wird nicht so viel gelesen wie die englische und einen ganzen Monat jeden Tag Blogeinträge in zwei Sprachen schreiben schlaucht ganz schön.)

    Seriously, that is a work of art! Almost too gorgeous to eat… almost ;-)

    This is ridiculous!! I can’t imagine having the patience to make these but I’d very happily eat them. I also loved hearing about the locations used in the movie, I don’t think I’ll be able to watch the bakery scene without thinking about the cheese now!

    These are so pretty! I don’t remember them from the movie, so now I have an excuse to watch it again :)

    I love film, so it was really nice reading such a detailed post!

    I think Wes Anderson loves the idea of making the audience aware that they are watching a film. A lot of great film directors do this, Alfred Hitchcock being one of the first main directors to do this. Watching his old films you can notice a lot of „goofs“ with props, and it is on purpose. So I bet that a lot of the language mix ups were done intentionally to make people aware they aren’t actually in Europe, but in a fictional world, or to be funny, or both. XD

    And as for the film location that is totally a film thing, not just Wes Anderson. When I went to school for film, one of the things we were told was to use several spots for one location. The example my teacher used was „If the character is looking out a window, and you cut to what they are looking at, you don’t need to film out the actual window the actor is looking through. Find a better window“

      Right after I had posted I realised that I was talking complete nonsnse about locations! It’s probably just because I know what’s behind that museum and that the pastry shop is a dairy. I also love how Wes Anderson directs the movie to make us aware of so many things! I usually watch his films several times and still there are so many allusions, hints, and other tiny things I don’t get.

    That doughnut tower is magnificent.
    I love that movie! I also love The Darjeeling Limited.

    I don’t see lots of movies, but I love Wes Anderson’s weird movies, and The Grand Budapest Hotel is probably my favorite one of all. I can’t even believe that you tackled this amazing project — and that they are so beautiful!! Was it super, super fun to eat them?? Did you feel like a magical fancy pants?

    The colors are very Wes Anderson! Your information on linguistics was really interesting, all that stuff flew over my head watching the movie. The cheese shop turned bakery for the film is hilarious -I find the smell of cheese overpowering too, it would have been so hard to ignore that and act like the shop smelt like sugar and sweet risen yeast! I want to re-watch that seen just to see if I can catch a flicker in the eye or nose wince :)

    OMG, this is amazing. I love Wes Anderson and the Grand Budapest and have often thought someone should veganize the Courtesans au Chocolat. Well done!!

  • I loved this movie so much!
    What a great dessert!

    Haha, this cracked me up: „Beautiful pastries smelling like aged cheese.“
    The pastries look incredible, C! I love the colors too. Not to mention they also have the advantage of not smelling like aged cheese.

    These are the most adorable things I’ve ever seen. You’ve convinced me that I need to see this movie too!

    They look extraordinary! You must be so impressed with how they turned out. I’m a huge Wes Anderson fan. I didn’t know where Grand Budapest Hotel was filmed, but I’ve quickly scoped out Goerlitz and it looks very pretty indeed. Maybe I’ll try to plan a visit!

      It would definitely be worth a day trip! And from there you can easily get to Dresden or do Poland.
