The world premiere of Wes Anderson's keenly awaited caper "The Grand Budapest Hotel" will open the 64th Berlin film festival Thursday as it joins the race for the Golden Bear top prize.The high-profile opening movie with an all-star cast led by British actor Ralph Fiennes marks a coup for the Berlinale, Europe's first major cinema showcase of the year.Anderson has lined up another stellar ensemble cast including Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Bill Murray, Harvey Keitel, Lea Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Tilda Swinton along with Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric and Owen Wilson to light up Berlin's red carpet.Fiennes, who reportedly took the lead role when Johnny Depp bowed out, appears as Gustave, who is accused of Madame D's murder by her scheming son (Brody).Last year the drama "Child's Pose", set among the monied class of post-communist Romania, captured the Golden Bear.
