I had been waiting to see Wes Anderson's latest project from the moment it was announced. The Canadian release date was delayed, and then ended up being limited to a few theaters. I'm happy to say that it finally made it to a local theater and I saw it at the earliest opportunity a few hours ago.

To describe the plot would be both difficult and pointless. Wes Anderson is an acquired taste and fans are likely to love everything he releases. The Grand Budapest Hotel certainly has the same tongue-in-cheek tone of his previous films, and the similarities don't end there. Neil Young once said that his output was all one song, and Anderson's feels like all one film.

The story is beautifully framed, with an old man recollecting his past to an interested writer. The images are typical Anderson, with the usual explosion of colors and storybook settings. This feeling is heightened by the use of title cards to denote the chapters and the familiar style of music used in previous efforts. The story takes place in three different time periods, but we spend most of our time in 1932. All of the scenes from the past are shown in full screen, while the main narration sequences are in widescreen.

All I will say about the plot is that is focuses on hotel employees M. Gustave (Fiennes) and Zero Moustafa (Revolori). Gustave dates old women and one of them leaves him a valuable painting in her will. Her family are rather annoyed, and hire someone to retrieve the painting. The story is incredibly detailed and vast, despite only running for 100 minutes. There are frequent moments of witty humor, farce, irony and visual gags. Most of Anderson's regulars appear in the film at some point, and it's a tribute to him that such talents are willing to show up for such limited screen time.

This movie had an interesting story. It was told in a way that captured the viewer. Learning about the hotel and the people in it were just the small parts of a much bigger picture. I found this movie to be cleverly told. It had fantastic cinematography, with so many wonderful actors helping to bring it to life. I laughed out loud a few times, and then it hit me, it was slightly reminiscent of The Pink Panther. You know the ones with Jacques Clousseau... oh the laughs!
Lots of people will enjoy and appreciate this movie. I just know it.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is a remote mountainside hotel located in the fictional Republic of Zubrowka, a European alpine state.

The film takes place in the early 1930's during a poverty ridden war time, and follows the adventures & misfortunes of the Hotel's concierge (Ralph Fiennes) and his lobby boy (Tony Revolori) on a quest to rightfully obtain a rare and priceless painting called "Boy With Apple", which he surprisingly inherited upon the sudden and mysterious death of his estranged & elderly millionaire lover, and to clear his name of any involvement in her death. However, the son of the late Madame D (Dmitri) full of rage over his mothers relationship with Mr.Gustave will stop at nothing to destroy the playboy concierge, and stop him from finding the "True" and final last will and testament of his late mother which has mysteriously gone missing.

The lobby boy Zero becomes very loyal to Mr.Gustave, and acts as his side-kick/brother in arms throughout the film, while Dmitri (Adrien Brody) sends out his henchman Jopler (Willem Dafoe)to get rid of anyone or anything that attempts to find and expose the "True" last will and testament of his late mother. This is where we see a side of violence that Anderson has not ventured into in any of his previous films, and may catch you off guard at first. With the combination of German Gestapo like violence, and the ever-present sense of the depressing war time in which the film takes place.....this is the "Darkest" of Wes Anderson's films to date, and perhaps one could say it is his contribution to "Film Noir."

Loved this movie and bought it as soon as was available! Hilariously dry, absolutely chocked FULL of talented (and famous) actors, and a storyline with enough twists to keep you guessing.
I have given this costume drama 5 stars, but there may be a small minority of those that may not fully appreciate the somewhat eccentric characters and unusual storyline.
If you love dry/deadpan humour (think "Fawlty Towers" dry), and quirky characters, you LOVE this!

It was nice to see Ralph Fiennes doing comedy again, and this time with a script that someone had thought about so that he wasn't wasting his time and talent. Actually, the only reason I didn't give 5 stars for this movie is that there were just a few moments where they could have played it a bit more for laughs, not stupid jokes but clever wit. But it is highly enjoyable, with a solid cast, though one doesn't enough of some of them and few hardly register at all. Why wasn't more made of the title? Those who have seen the film will know what I mean, but for the rest, perhaps just a trifle dull or misleading.
However, unlike most of the recent films, this is not one of those where I felt I had wasted not only my money but my time. Everyone involved seems to have done their best to make it an intelligent, witty comedy, with a few serious moments, and they have succeeded admirably.
Those who buy it will not watch it time and time again for the first month or two and then relegate it to the bottom of their stack. It will slip into your DVD player at least twice a year, every year, and be fresh and new.
