Excellent film dramatique avec une histoire originale et des acteurs pleins de talent!

Beautiful touching story set after WW1. Paula Beer is outstanding in her role. Loved the black and white photography. Great film!

Superb film! Try to get the DVD with the "liner notes." Excellent acting by 20-year-old newbie Paula Beer. Also (naturally) excellent acting by Pierre Niney (see his portrayal of Yves Saint-Laurent) of the famous Comédie Française. Can you believe that Beer did not speak French before the movie, and Niney never really learned German, just learned how to speak his lines? The Bonus material includes a great interview with director Ozon; be sure to watch it.

I don't think I'm artsy enough to appreciate this film as the other reviewers did. I've never heard of Ozon, so that proves my point. Slow & depressing film for me. But, WWI was slow & depressing. Maybe that's the point. If you hate subtitles, skip this one.

I've read about Ozon and his films, but I'd never gotten around to seeing one until "Frantz". Well made and quite accessible post-WWI drama. (I love when actors do great eye work!) Last scene and last line sums it all up.

French enfant terrible François Ozon shows his human side in this beautifully crafted tale of remorse in which harsh reality and comforting lies play out against a backdrop of priggish nationalism. A beautiful musical score and sublime use of B&W with segues in and out of pastel colours aims this one straight for the heart. Ozon’s films may not revel in happy endings, but "Frantz" has compassion to spare.
