Anyone who reads the back of the film sleeve will have some concept of what Century Hotel is about. ONE ROOM, SEVEN STORIES, etc. For the most part, each major happening in the movie takes zone in room 720, as if the room (or a ghost who inhabits the room) is saying us every of these tales. Since all seven stories are being said from the ROOM'S perspective, we can only expect to know what goes on in that room and nothing more. Not all the stories are fully wrapped up in room 720 and we shouldn't expect them to be. Just as we don't see everyone check in, we shouldn't be surprised that we don't see everyone check out. What Century Hotel provides for viewers are glimpses into various people's lives from various time periods. Every of these stories is about a various form of LOVE and it is interesting to see these sides of love, even if every storyline only occupies about 15 mins of film.To quote the nice Roger Ebert, "I prefer to evaluate a movie on the basis of what it intends to do, not on what I think it could have done." On this basis, Century Hotel succeeds for what it is: Seven glimpses into various forms of love, complimented with nice acting, nice cinematography and beyond.
I just saw this movie last night at the Victoria Independent Movie Festival and was very impressed. The intertwining stories of eroticism, death, betrayal, love and understanding were a feast for the eyes and the heart. David Weaver and Co. give a lesson in how to construct a pretty film on a limited budget with a minimum of location.The set design was impeccable. From the opulence of the turn of the century to the stark functionality of the recession era 80's the designers managed to capture the essence of every era in the furnishings and decorative aspects of the room.Less than convincing was Raine Maida's effort at the cliched emotionally unstable rock star recluse. I suppose my judgment is clouded by seeing the perfect portrayal of told cliche by Maury Chaykin in Whale Music. Also, the dialogue between Raine and Chantal was strained and really didn't fit into the stream of the rest of the movie.Of particular enjoyment were the scenes between the Hotel Detective and the Nerdy Ebook Lover. Their chemistry together was unmistakable. The simplistic dissection of the nature of love between a boy and a girl gave me many a laugh.All in all, a highly suggested Canadian flick.9/10
A score of seven might seem a bit high for a "decent" movie, but I so rarely play films these days that this one deserves it.Basically, it's seven stories that happen in this one hotel room at various points in the twentieth century. Some of the stories are good, some are only mediocre, but overall it's a great effect. The distinct atmosphere of every storyline gives you a nice feel for the changing time periods. The transitions take a bit of getting used to at first, but I've seen worse. The ending isn't anything spectacular, but it fits in all right with the rest of the movie.This is the type of film that you can walk away from without feeling that you've wasted an hour and a half of your life. As a rule, I like that in entertainment. It's an interesting movie that never slows down so much as to lose your attention. It's not a massive movie by any means; it's even got it's amusing moments. Watch it some evening when you've got nothing better to do.
