Director François Ozon’s latest masterpiece is a hypnotic tale of love and remembrance.

A multi-award nominee, Frantz features a stunning lead performance from Paula Beer, in a sumptuous period drama.

In a small German town in the wake of the First World War, Anna, a young woman mourning the death of her fiancé, forms a bond with an unknown Frenchman (Pierre Niney) who has arrived to lay flowers on her beloved’s grave. The arrival of this enigmatic Frenchman raises suspicions and ignites passions in Anna’s war-wounded home town, and as the mystery deepens, secrets long-buried in the past threaten to surface and change everything.

Director: Francois Ozon
Cast: Pierre Niney, Paula Beer, Ernst Stötzner

“A rare beauty. In contrasting cultural superiority and xenophobia against the healing power of art and forgiveness (is a lie often less painful than the truth?) Frantz is a film of its time … and ours!”
