Hotel Chevalier 2007: “— I love you. I never hurt you on purpose. — I don’t care.”
Hotel Chevalier is a 2007 American-French short film written and directed by Wes Anderson. Starring Jason Schwartzman and Natalie Portman as former lovers who reunite in a Paris hotel room. This 13-minute film acts as a prologue to Anderson’s 2007 feature The Darjeeling Limited.
“When it was all done, I didn’t want to incorporate the short into the movie. But I couldn’t decide how I wanted it to go. I wanted to play the short in front of the movie, but not always. Sometimes I preferred to watch the movie without the short. It became a puzzle to me. So in the end I decided that I would like to have the movie open in America without the short, but I would like people to have access to it if they want to see it first.” — Wes Anderson
