The Grand Budapest Hotel** (15)
The adventures of a womanising concierge and his bellboy in a 1932 grand hotel in the volatile mid-European nation of Zubrowka.
Quirky American take on the writings of Stefan Zweig, jarring a little in its use of foul language in the Bohemian 1930s, but wittily evokd in familiar semi-fantasy fashion with an all-star Anderson ensemble from his previous films impressed enough by his reputation to play guest spots.
