Movie Summary

Released:
2016
Rating:
Not rated
In a small German town in the immediate aftermath of WWI, Anna (Paula Beer) grieves for her late fiancé, Frantz. When she encounters a mysterious young Frenchman (Pierre Niney) laying flowers at Frantz's grave, Anna welcomes him into her life and their shared connection to Frantz propels a haunting and romantic tale of guilt and forgiveness in the shadow of war. Directed by acclaimed French filmmaker François Ozon and shot in gorgeous black and white with revelatory moments of color, Frantz is a poignant reflection on national identity and alternative truths that turns "a beautiful period piece into something urgent and contemporary." (The Hollywood Reporter)
