JUNE 12 … FRANTZ

Frantz

Germany   1hr 53mins   Drama/History   PG-13

Anna is a bereft young German woman whose fiance, Frantz, was killed in the trenches of World War I. Adrien, a French veteran of the war, makes a mysterious appearance in her town, placing flowers on Frantz’s grave. Adrien’s presence is met with resistance by the small community still reeling from Germany’s defeat, yet Anna gradually becomes closer to the handsome and melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz.

“This sublime mature work by François Ozon borrows liberally from Ernst Lubitsch’s Broken Lullaby (1932) but supplants its fevered melodrama with erotically charged mystery.” – Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
