Two New Grand Budapest Hotel Clips Online
Fiennes is planning a prison break with Harvey Keitel

If you took all of Wes Anderson's previous films, stuck them in a large saucepan and simmered them overnight, the concentrated Anderson-iness left in the pan come morning would look a lot like The Grand Budapest Hotel. Don't believe us? Sample these two new clips from the film.

 

The story is a multi-layered affair, with an author (Tom Wilkinson) related a story he was told in his younger days (when he was Jude Law) by a mysterious tycoon (F. Murray Abraham). That story focuses on hotel concierge M. Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes) and his new lobby boy Zero (Tony Revolori), and the antics that ensue when an elderly client (Tilda Swinton) bequeaths a valuable painting to Gustave. Cue farcical mishaps, the prison scene you see here, and a nascent love affair between Zero and local baker Agatha (Saoirse Ronan).

 

With a cast also including  Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jason Schwartzman, Bob Balaban, Léa Seydoux, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Jeff Goldblum and Harvey Keitel, The Grand Budapest Hotel hits UK screens on Marcy 7.
