French-German drama co-written and directed by Francois Ozon. The film follows German woman Anna (Beer) whose fiance Frantz (Anton von Lucke) has just been killed in the First World War. On one of her daily visits to his grave, a year after his death, she is startled by a young Frenchman named Adrien (Pierre Niney) who claims to know her late partner from their shared time studying in Paris together before the war. Won over by his story and sympathetic to his fragile state, Anna invites him to meet Frantz's parents, Dr Hans (Ernst Stotzner) and Magda Hoffmeister (Marie Gruber) with whom she now lives. Although they are initially hostile towards the Frenchman they soon warm to his charms, as does Anna. When she follows him back to Paris, however, she is still conflicted about her attachment to Frantz and whether her future truly lies with Adrien.
