THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL 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 most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune -- all against the back-drop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

Special mention should go to Tony Revolori, perhaps the best straight-man, while holding his own.
Anderson's manic narrative is never slow, and some of his stock characteristics are ever-present. I haven't had such a good ride in years, not to mention the downhill sled-ride.
Brilliantly written, edited and executed, not to mention excellent tongue-in-cheek performances from all of the supporting characters, this is my favorite film of the last few years.
Unfortunately, it was released too early in the year to be given serious Oscar contention, but, awards aside, I can't recommend this film highly enough. Fiennes should be nominated, as should Anderson and Best Picture.
UPDATE: Lots of Oscar noms and wins. Deserved more. My fave film of 2014.
