This film focuses on Mr Gustave, a renowned concierge at a prestigious hotel in the fictional country of Zubrowka. Gustave and his protégé, Zero, embark on a quest to clear Gustave’s name after he is accused of the murder of a wealthy dowager. Their adventures involve a priceless painting and occur against the backdrop of a rising fascist regime. Wes Anderson’s films have a beautiful visual style, with asymmetrical shapes and vibrant colours. The dialogues are both witty and bold. With Ralph Fiennes as Mr Gustave and an outstanding cast of actors, this is a really nice film.
