About the Film:
Part of Cinémathèque Française 2017
Directed by François Ozon. France/Germany. 2016. 113 min. French and German with English subtitles.
A lyrical black-and-white remake of Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 Broken Lullaby, this César nominee tells the story of Adrien, a Frenchman who travels to Germany after World War I in search of the family of Frantz, who was killed during trench warfare. Anna (21-year-old Paula Beer in a breakthrough performance) is Frantz’s bereft fiancé. Adrien (Pierre Niney of Yves Saint Laurent), is a veteran of the war who shows up mysteriously 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 gets closer to the handsome, melancholy young man, as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz, conjured up in evocative flashbacks.
