As they start to bond over their shared grief and Anna is intrigued by the enigmatic nature of Adrien’s relationship with her fiancé. Shot mainly in stunning black and white, Frantz is a masterly told story of romance, grief and guilt, featuring two remarkable lead performances from newcomers Paula Beer and Pierre Niney.
