Gustave H (Fiennes), the flamboyantly orderly concierge of the Grand Budapest Hotel, likes to romance the elderly guests, but when his wealthy lover (Swinton) dies mysteriously, he finds himself framed for murder. Perhaps Anderson's most uncompromisingly eccentric and perfectly realised film to date, with an astonishing and revelatory comic performance from Fiennes.
