From our nearby neighbours, France, our next World Cinema film is Frantz, “a beautiful film with an urgent story”.

This sumptuous and highly-rated period drama (2016) is loosely based on the 1932 drama ‘Broken Lullaby’, by Ernst Lubitsch. It tells the story of a German woman grieving the death of her lover during the first World War - she’s shocked when his grave is visited not just by her, but also by a Frenchman who claims he was friends with her beloved before the war.
