François Ozon surprises again with sumptuous period war drama.

Guardian

Our Spotlight film for May is a sumptuous monochrome period war drama from one of France's most important living filmmakers, François Ozon.

Set in a small German town after World War I, young German woman Anna (Venice award-winning Paula Beer) mourns daily at the grave of her fiancé Frantz who was killed in battle in France. But when a young Frenchman Adrien (Pierre Niney) arrives, claiming to have been close friends with her late partner, Anna finds herself falling for this charming stranger and a passionate affair begins.

Ozon throws in a deliciously twisty narrative, which along with his visual flair, make Frantz an utterly compelling watch.

BBFC Classification Advice: Infrequent moderate violence.

More twists and turns than strictly. The mostly black and white photography enhances the convincing period atmosphere. Intensely poignant at times and thought-provoking. Interesting counterpoint of white lies, journeys and coincidences. Exquisite!
