The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Directed by
Wes Anderson

Ralph Fiennes is on delicious form in this brilliantly quirky comedy from cult director Wes Anderson.

Fiennes stars as Gustave, debonair concierge at the Grand Budapest Hotel in 1930s Europe and also something of a lady-killer, a tag which becomes uncomfortably pertinent when one of his elderly lovers, Madame D (Tilda Swinton), dies under mysterious circumstances. When Madame D bequeaths a valuable painting to Gustave, her family are furious, causing the concierge – aided by lobby boy Zero – to flee with the priceless piece. But before long, Gustave falls under suspicion for his elderly acquaintance’s murder.

Anderson assembles his usual cast of top talent (including regular collaborators Bill Murray, Edward Norton and Jason Schwartzman) for this acclaimed comedy, which also features a delightfully eccentric comic turn from Fiennes. This off-kilter caper also features Anderson’s trademark stylish aesthetic and is perhaps his most visually pleasing film to date, but is not without a clutch of well-drawn characters.
