The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson)

This recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune.

Starring: Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson

My thoughts on this film: There is not much to the story but it is a quite amusing one - although not as amusing as one would have thought from watching the trailer. The visuals are also absolutely delightful. However, the best part, in my humble opinion, is that the film is loaded with great cameos and little roles giving it that extra flavour.
