In 1919, in a small France-hating German town, Anna (played by rising international star Paula Beer) lives with the parents of her fiance, Frantz, who died on the battlefield. One day, she notices a distraught young man, a stranger, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave. This is the mystery that initiates François Ozon’s austerely compelling FRANTZ, an engrossing, intrigue-filled period drama about postwar grief and the therapeutic power of the benevolent lie.

“Exquisite and haunting…one of the talented director Francois Ozon’s very best films.” – Dennis Dermody, Paper

“A richly imagined and superbly assembled period piece that is both urgent and contemporary.” – Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

“Mr. Ozon is a formidable storyteller. Ms. Beer is a quietly spellbinding star.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

“It’s a rare beauty, this odd-duck of a period piece from the great French director François Ozon….In contrasting cultural superiority and xenophobia against the healing power of art and forgiveness, FRANTZ is a film of its time … and ours.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Language: German, French (English subtitles)
