Every new movie by Wes Anderson is irresistibly delightful, sweetly crazy and not to be missed. The Grand Budapest Hotel fits the mold: nutty characters, subtle humor, a unique universe, flamboyant direction with a troupe of excellent actors – including a rare appearance by Ralph Fiennes in the lead. The element of surprise, which has slowly disappeared with the success of each Wes Anderson film, has made room for a sweet stroll through conquered territory, offering wonderful entertainment.
