The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is so adorable film with so adorable characters, that there is just no way you won't like it. The characters are so sweet, that you will easily sympathize with them. When I think about the film, it just makes me smile. Actually, there is not a character, whose story would not interest me. The screenplay is funny and fresh and the characters are written really wonderfully. They are just like any of us, but they are not boring. The screenplay always makes you enjoy the film because it always has an ace to play. When you think that some character's story will not surprise you anymore, a reversal comes.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel probably won't score in the technical categories. The cinematography, the makeup, the costume design, the score are nothing special. But there is something mention-worthy. The first thing is the art direction, that is really great. The hotel, the city, or the call center. It is not only beautiful, but even perfectly works for the film. The other thing is the editing (oh, I'm rhyming :). It is really not easy to edit this kind of film. Many characters, many locations and it need to be not chaotic. And Chris Gill succeeded in this.
