Synopsis:

In a small German town after World War I, a 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. One day Adrien, a young Frenchman (Pierre Niney) also lays flowers at the grave. His presence so soon after the German defeat ignites passions.

Never one to play it safe, François Ozon (The New Girlfriend) defies labels yet again with this striking reimagining of Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 drama, Broken Lullaby
