Set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World
War, (1914-1918), Frantz recalls the mourning period that follows great
national tragedies as seen through the eyes of the war's "lost
generation": Anna (21 year-old Paula Beer in a breakthrough
performance), a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was
killed during trench warfare, and Adrien (Pierre Niney), a French 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 and melancholy young man,
as she learns of his deep friendship with Frantz, conjured up in
In French and German with English subtitles.
