Wes Anderson lastest movie "The Grand Budapest Hotel is inspired by Stefan Zweigs' "Rausch der Verwandlung" which also plays in a Grand Hotel and is narrated as a story within a story, one of Zweig’s favourite devices. I also had to think of "Die Bekenntnisse des Hochstaplers Felix Krull" of Thomas Mann, in which a lift-boy in a grand Parisian establishment charms and seduces the wealthy guests. Anyway it is a must see movie - really funny.
