Does anachronistic cursing bother you in a film?

Asked by janbb (44250 points ) May 15th, 2014

I just saw the movie “Grand Budapest Hotel” and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. It was a great parody of European culture and attitudes as well as a playful romp. But the main character who was supposed to be a cultured concierge in the 1930s kept using strong curse words. I’m not a prude by any means but I found it jarring – as I did the obvious American accents. (Wonder if it was done for a reason.) Anyone else ever notice this?
