Exclusive: Listen To 4 Concierge Character Playlists From Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

While Ralph Fiennes' M. Gustave leads the way in Wes Anderson's utterly delightful "The Grand Budapest Hotel" as the concierge against which all others are measured, one of the many pleasures of the movie is discovering that he's not alone in ensuring the highest standards of his profession are met. As M. Gustave untangles himself from a conspiracy involving murder and a prized artwork, he has to call upon his colleagues—part of The Society Of The Crossed Keys—for their assistance. With those associates played by the likes of Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson, it makes for some truly good fun in an already screwball journey.

While Ralph Fiennes' M. Gustave leads the way in Wes Anderson's utterly delightful "The Grand Budapest Hotel" as the concierge against which all others are measured, one of the many pleasures of the movie is discovering that he's not alone in ensuring the highest standards of his profession are met. As M. Gustave untangles himself from a conspiracy involving murder and a prized artwork, he has to call upon his colleagues—part of The Society Of The Crossed Keys—for their assistance. With those associates played by the likes of Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson, it makes for some truly good fun in an already screwball journey.

If you're looking for a little more flavor to those characters, today we have an exclusive which opens up a bit more to their varying personalities. Randall Poster has put together Spotify playlists for Gustave H., M. Ivan, M. Jean and M. Chuck. It's clever stuff, with Gustave H. obviously a fan of the finest things, including of course classical music. Meanwhile, M. Ivan likes his tunes with a little bit of soul. M. Jean on the other hand, goes for a bit more rock 'n roll and M. Chuck prefers some honky tonk.

Check it all out below, along with character posters for each concierge. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is in theatres now.
