DirectorCast

François OzonPierre Niney, Paula Beer

France, Germany / 2016 / 113 minutes / DCP

François Ozon veers off the beaten track with Frantz, his elegant and inquisitive film using Ernst Lubitsch’s Broken Lullaby as a springboard to explore grief and forgiveness. Starting with the narrative of a mysterious Frenchman forming a bond with a dead German soldier’s mournful fiancée, Anna, the film skillfully shifts to the Ozonian style of woman’s perspective, focusing on Anna’s inner struggle after discovering the bitter truth of her love. A beautifully rendered, primarily black-and-white elegy within Ozon’s diverse filmography.
