Movie: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Set in a fictional European country, the story is about a luxury hotel concierge - Gustave M, a murder mystery involving an old Countess (who it turns out, owns the hotel) and the lobby boy (taken under the wing of the concierge) who would eventually end up owning the hotel. The movie is a comedic masterpiece  - without body fluid gags, or slapstick; with amazing performances by non comedic actors such as Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law and Willem Dafoe; and an amazing script. It is really a difficult movie to describe; but is highly enjoyable.
