It is a serious movie at some points due to the subject matter but there are a lot of great and funny scenes.
Thanks, N&V! Watched it last night on your rec. Darned good for a directorial debut. I thought the grandfather was great. The whole thing was perhaps a bit too obviously Wes Anderson influenced, but a good watch nevertheless. Going to have to read the book, now...
