LFF 2016: ‘Frantz’ ★★★

François Ozon’s latest feature, Frantz, is a stylistically rich, emotionally restrained historical endeavour. It is led by strong performances from Pierre Niney and Paula Beer. This is Franco-German co-production which has been selected for the 2016 BFI London Film Festival’s Official Competition and which takes place in the immediate aftermath of World War I.

I reviewed Frantz for France in London – read the full review here.
