In a small German town shortly after World War I, emotions are still raw and animosity toward former enemies still strong. Anna (Paula Beer) mourns daily at the grave of her fiancé Frantz, killed in battle in France. One day she spies a mysterious young Frenchman laying flowers at the grave, and she sets out to learn about Adrien (Pierre Niney) and his pre-war friendship with Frantz. Her quest will bring her both love and pain and ultimately take her to Paris. Inspired by Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 antiwar drama Broken Lullaby, French filmmaker François Ozon creates a visually exquisite portrait of a period and the bonds of humanity that transcend borders and language. In French and German with English subtitles. Writer/Director: François Ozon. (France/Germany 2016) 113 min.
