The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - David Strat­ton

Frantz (PG) Frantz is one of di­rec­tor Fran­cois Ozon’s best films and one of his most touch­ing. The emo­tion­ally rich story works beau­ti­fully, hing­ing as it does on mis­un­der­stand­ings and mis­in­ter­pre­ta­tions. The cast, led by the mag­nif­i­cent Paula Beer, give ex­em­plary per­for­mances and while ad­mir­ers of the Ernst Lu­bitsch film Bro­ken Lul­labye on which it is based (sadly, there prob­a­bly are not many around) may quib­ble at some of Ozon’s choices, over­all this is a suc­cess­ful re­work­ing of a cel­e­brated be­tween-wars drama.
