The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of M. Gustave, 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.

I’m struggling with what to say about this film. It started out great and I was engrossed but it somehow didn’t sustain that but I’m not sure why. The concept of it is beautiful and I hope I like it more when I see it again someday.
