In a small German town grieving in the immediate aftermath of the Great War, Anna is surprised to find a stranger laying roses on the grave of Frantz, her fallen fiancé. The stranger is Adrien, a Frenchman who knew Frantz in the years before the war and who brings with him memories of music and dancing—and of colour, which bursts joyously onto the screen for fleeting passages in François Ozon’s elegantly rendered, mostly monochromatic tale of loss and recovery. Based on the same play that inspired Ernst Lubitsch’s Broken Lullaby, the sublime Frantz shifts between France and Germany, French and German, past and present.
