The Grand Budapest Hotel is not a callous work, but it's about packing painful experience in storage.

A grownup storybook of a movie spun out of candy-colored nonsense that challenges you to embrace its falseness and deny its romance.

Even a squirrelly director finds a nut once in a while.

Ralph Fiennes holds civilization together with little more than his impeccable manners and mustache in Wes Anderson's absurdist dollhouse of a tragicomedy.

Many Wes Anderson films have been intricately laced together, the ingredients blending just so. But nothing matches this perfectly layered concoction, wrapped up in an impeccable confectioner's bow.

In theory, we all should know that stepping into a theater automatically makes what we are about to see a story within a story - but director Wes Anderson delights in showing us the artifice

Wes Anderson has outdone himself, proving to be the reigning Mother of Invention.

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" is not his grandest work yet, but it is one worth an extended stay.

With apologies to Willy Wonka and his wallpaper-licking visitors, the titular Alpine resort is the most edible-looking lodge in cinema: a multitiered, pink-frosted castle designed to endure as an ambrosial memory.

Those like myself who admire auteur-driven filmmaking can celebrate with the release of "The Grand Budapest Hotel," the best movie of 2014 at this early stage, and perhaps likely to remain so for some time to come.

Once again, Anderson has managed to make an affecting, funny movie; it may be more melancholy than most, but bittersweet love is love nonetheless, and The Grand Budapest Hotel is worth visiting multiple times.

Anderson's admirers will love it, while those who resist his quirky mix of deadpan precision and manic disorder must grant that it fits the story he tells here.

The mannered, madcap proceedings are often delightful, occasionally silly, and here and there, gruesome and/or heartbreaking.

The result is as offbeat as any of Anderson's films, but more heartfelt than most.

The lingering impact of the movie is slighter than it hopes to be, a pastiche full of sound and whimsy, signifying nothing.

There's more creativity and inventiveness on display here than in the rest of last weekend's top 10 box-office draws combined.

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" is Anderson's finest attempt at film whimsy. He's created a movie that is as visually stunning as it is smartly written.

Like most of Anderson's films -- and Gustave himself -- the film is rather pleased with itself, but its exuberant humour and pacy plot keep it accessible while Fiennes delivers his funniest role ever.
