Sunday Movie: The Grand Budapest Hotel

The latest from idiosyncratic writer-director Wes Anderson has all the luminosity of MOONRISE KINGDOM and frenetic wit of THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS – and then some.

Set in the interwar years, the film centres on the eponymous hotel, its savvy concierge Gustave (Fiennes) and his new lobby boy Zero Moustafa (newcomer Tony Revolori), who progresses from naive apprentice to Gustave’s trusted accomplice.

The guile of both is tested when one of Gustave’s most favoured guests (a heavily camouflaged Tilda Swinton) bequeaths him a priceless painting, thereby arousing the suspicions of Edward Norton’s detective Henckels.

Their ensuing adventures propel the story along at a heady pace and involve numerous roguish characters, many played by Anderson regulars including Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson. Glorious fun.

***I saw the trailer & it is a fun movie to see. Also it is not allocated seating***
