Synopsis

Figgis' split screen DV experimentations continue to striking effect in this fabulously complex film within a film within a film ... Largely improvised by a stellar cast that includes Burt Reynolds, Lucy Liu, David Schwimmer, Rhys Ifans, Salma Hayek, Saffron Burrows, John Malkovich and Chiara Mastroianni, the Hotel of the title is the fabulous Hungarian Palace in Venice. Within this setting several stories are cut together, combining Eastern European political sleaze with a mysterious murder, an uptight English tour guide and a film crew shooting a Dogme-style version of The Duchess of Malfi as scripted by Heathcote Wiliams. HOTEL proves that Figgis is one of the few film makers who will experiment to discover the new possibilities of the medium.
