A fashion photographer with terminal cancer elects to die alone, preparing others to live past him rather than prolong the inevitable with chemotherapy or be smothered in sympathy by those who know him.
In 1919 Quedlinburg, Germany, a young woman named Anna is still mourning the death of her fiance, Frantz Hoffmeister, in the Great War while living with his equally devastated parents. One day, a mysterious Frenchman, Adrien Rivoire, comes to town both to pay his respects to Frantz's grave and to contact that soldier's parents. Although it is difficult for both sides with the bitterness of Germany's defeat, Adrian explains that he knew Frantz and gradually he wins Anna and the Hoffmeisters' hearts as he tries to connect with them. Unfortunately, Adrien and Anna discover the truth of his motives and things seem shattered for all. However, when Adrien leaves, Anna has her own struggles with the truth and her feelings until she sets out to find Adrien in France. With that, Anna has her own journey to make in more than one sense, even as they both realize that neither have easy answers to their complex personal conflicts with each other and the dead man linking them.Written by

I am a big fan of Ozon. To me, watching his movie feels like there is always a dagger underneath the pictures, in a stunning and good way. Frantz changed my whole ideas about him, I love his changes.
Have you ever seen those Chinese paper cut before? They use scissors to create all wonderful flowers and animals from red papers. It is fragile, beautiful, your heart will go with the sharp edges and afraid the damages might happen. To me , this whole new 'Scissor' feelings of Ozon's movie is way more deeper and exciting than his old 'dagger' skills. The dagger is exciting and thrill, yet scissor brings more possibility.
I love the use of Korsakov's 'Scheherazade' in the movie. Scheherazade is trying to escape horrible killing might happened by telling colourful stories to the king. Using pretty stuff to escape the horrible reality might be the biggest achievement of arts. Even it is a painting about death.
