Pierre Niney, Paula Beer, Ernst Stötzner

In a small German town after World War I, Anna mourns daily at the grave of her fiancé Frantz, killed in battle in France. One day a young Frenchman, Adrien, also lays flowers at the grave. His presence so soon after the German defeat ignites passions. Director Francois Ozon drew his inspiration from Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 drama Broken Lullaby, with stunning visual references to painter Caspar David Friedrich.

"French filmmaker Francois Ozon reminds us of the adage, "the first casualty of war is truth." He does so in a way that beguiles but also bedevils." - Bruce Demara, Toronto Star

"'Frantz,' a moving film set in post-World War I Europe, looks at truth and lies and the necessity for both in a grieving world that makes no sense." - Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
