For his adaptation of John Irving’s epic, plot-stuffed tragicomic novel, Tony Richardson cast Kinski against type as… a bear. That her character, a young woman helping to run a hotel in Vienna, spends most of the film in a full-body bear costume is far from the most outlandish plot point in The Hotel New Hampshire, which zigzags giddily from New England to Austria to New York, accumulating episodes funny and horrifying, minor and grave, satisfying and (more often) unresolved. A forerunner in subject matter and plot structure to the films of Wes Anderson, especially The Royal Tenenbaums and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
