After being accused of murder, the film looks at the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, who has help from Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.
Many have said it’s Wes Anderson’s best film to-date, though I’ve never seen many of his films I can’t say but this quirky film is definitely worth seeing…just for its sheer quirkiness. With an all-star cast, though most of them are only in a couple of minutes, the film is bizarre, cleverly done and is not one to miss.
Although I wish there was of more an epic climax – as it’s pretty flat – the directing, the cinematic views, the acting – especially from Ralph Fiennes – and the memorable quirky scenes make it a lovely, weird film to watch.
The Grand Budapest Hotel: 7.6/10
