The Manager continued to extend it, until eventually it became infinitely large. One day much to his surprise, no spare rooms could be found in his now infinite hotel. All the mathematical calculations, which he normally relied on to find the rooms, just wouldn't work... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

This film is based around David Hilbert's Paradox of the Grand Hotel; a mathematical paradox relating to infinity. In the presentation of this paradox a hotel with an infinite number of rooms, and an infinite number of checked-in guests, can be shown to accommodate arbitrary numbers of additional guests, which raises interesting questions regarding countable infinities and the implausibility of real-world infinite objects.

Interesting and comic story
19 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Once upon a time there was a hotel in the mountains that was so popular that it decided to expand. However, even as it tried to add more and more rooms the guests just kept filling them. Eventually though, the hotel became infinitely big to the point where room numbers were assigned by complex mathematical formulae and the slogan became "we're always full but we always have room for you". However when an accident occurs, the formulae is thrown out of whack and, try as he might, the manager can no longer find the empty rooms that he knows, logically, must exist.

As the title suggests, this is about a hotel that has no ending but in this case the manager cannot find out where these infinite rooms are and is forced into making everyone move one or two rooms up – thus filling the infinite rooms and freeing up the rooms that he can locate. The idea is interesting even though it lacks any real sense or logic; it is delivered with a nice comic touch that helps it be quite enjoyable. It doesn't amount to a great deal of course but it is quite a "nice" short film that is a little different from others things you'll have seen. The cast are pretty good and the presence of the young boy helps bring consistency to the story even if he is not totally understood within the context of the narrative.

Although it is not fascinating or hilarious it is both interesting and amusing. These factors added to the unique feel make it a worthwhile watch even if it won't stick with you for any significant length of time.
