Frantz (2016, 113 min)
Film has English subtitles.
Shortly after World War I, Anna discovers a stranger at the grave of her late fiancé Frantz. The stranger introduces himself as a friend of the dead soldier. Growing fond of Adrien, Anna begins once again to embrace her future, when he makes a terrible confession and disappears, forcing her to go searching for him. François Ozon delivers a sumptuous period piece, a profoundly and effective pacifist film which surveys the human damage on both the winning and losing sides.
