Check out FRANTZ at the Landmark Kendall Square in Cambridge starting on March 31st! This film is set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War, and explores survivor’s guilt, anger at one’s losses, and a desire to find happiness after tragedy. The film revolves around the three primary characters, Anna, Adrien, and Frantz. 

Synopsis:

Following World War I, Anna quietly mourns the death of her German soldier fiancé, Frantz. Her grief is ruptured when she witnesses a stranger, Adrien, laying flowers at her beloved’s grave. Desperate for a connection to Frantz, Anna casts aside her animosity toward Adrien’s French origins and envelops him into her life. She basks in the stories he unfolds of Frantz, and their friendship in Paris before the war. But when the true nature of his bond with Frantz is revealed, Adrien flees Germany, sending Anna on a journey to Paris after him.

Based loosely on Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 film Broken Lullaby, Frantz is a profound look at the emotional devastation left in the tracks of war and the mechanisms humans grasp at while attempting to cope. Aided by a stunning performance from newcomer Paula Beer, Frantz resonates far beyond the confines of love and war.

After the film's première at the Venice International Film Festival, this film has been shown at film festivals around the world, including the Sundance Film Festival where it was highlighted as a spotlight feature. This film was also nominated for 10 César Awards and won the César for Best Cinematogrophy in 2017!
