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.

Gentle Fable
18 November 2006 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

In "Hotel Infinity," a father and son are traveling together and to pass the time, the father tells his son the story of a lodging where the hotel expands exponentially to accommodate its guests. The Manager is in charge of placing people into the vacant rooms and has an elaborate method for calculating just where the vacancies are, with the use of an abacus and a beautiful fountain pen.

However, the abacus gets broken and even after the repair, the manager has lost his ability to find the vacancies! The story is told simply and gently, much like a Aesop's Fable, and the film is shot beautifully. It's a charming short!
