A German woman (Paula Beer) grieving the death of her lover in World War I is shocked when his grave is visited by a Frenchman (Pierre Niney), who claims he was friends with her beloved before the war. The two bond over their shared connection, but when he returns to France, she decides to follow him in order to understand who he really is. Directed by François Ozon, Frantz is a remake of Ernst Lubitsch's antiwar drama Broken Lullaby.
