The 64th Berlin International Film Festival will open with the world premiere of Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Anderson’s follow up to his Oscar-nominated Moonrise Kingdom will screen at the Berlinale Palast on Feb 6, 2014.

Festival director Dieter Kosslick said: “With unmistakeable Wes Anderson charm, this comedy promises to kick things off in a big way.”

The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H, 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 backdrop of a dramatically changing Continent.

In addition to starring Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori in the lead roles, the film also features F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, [link »
