A sumptuous period war drama from one of France's most important filmmakers, François Ozon. Set in a small German town after World War I, young German woman Anna mourns daily at the grave of her fiancé Frantz who was killed in battle in France. But when a young Frenchman Adrien arrives, claiming to have been close friends with her late partner, Anna finds herself falling for this charming stranger.
Ozon throws in a deliciously twisty narrative, which along with his visual flair, make Frantz an utterly compelling watch.
