Hotel Splendide Movie Review


A cross between Delicatessen and The Road to Wellville, this bizarro flick puts Toni Collette in the role of a reluctant chef at a "resort" situated on a muddy "lake" and devoted to fetishism and overboiled-food to cure its patients of whatever ills them. The laughs come at the expense of a kooky cast of misfits -- unfortunately we're laughing at them, not with them. The movie's attempts at being serious, via the stern looks on Collette's face in opposition to the clearly unhealthy surroundings, come off as shallow -- and jeez, what's with that haircut??? So-so, but Delicatessen does this twice as well and with more flair.
