It's almost impossible not to fall in love with the fascinating world that Wes Anderson creates in his movies, each one of which speaks its unique idiosyncratic language.

Always a bit of a rebel child in soul, the director has shared a passion for storytelling since his childhood.

In college, he met Owen Wilson, now a famous actor featuring almost in every Wes' work. Sharing a lot of common interests and having a great synergy, he and Owen decided to make a movie, that's how their first short film "Bottle Rocket" (1994) was born.

The movie attracted an investor and with a larger budget Wes' new movies have started gaining more and more popularity.

Inspired by his own childhood, the famous movie director loves to highlight how children are often much wiser than adults by showing the immature behavior of adult characters and mature decisions of kids. Most of the time making ironic comedies, Wes always adds some serious or melancholic moments and meaning.

The distinctive style of Wes Anderson's movies can be seen from far, beautifully centred symmetric long shots, warm dusty pastel colors, always special music, along with great cast make it unique in its kind. The movies resembling more to theatre plays, have also won a big success among both public and critics.

Along with filming various commercials, including the one for Gucci, the director keeps creating excellently made movies, for example, the last released stop-motion animated movie "Isle of dogs" (2018), which was very well appreciated by the public and critics.
