Film No. 22 (2017) Frantz April 3rd.

Film No. 22 (2017) April 3rd.  6.30 PM LUNA Paradiso, Northbridge.

"Frantz never told me about you" (Anna talks about her fiancé with the mysterious Andrien).

This beautifully shot post WWI drama gives us a character of wonderful depth, Anna (Paula Beer). The film balances grief, with mystery then finally heartbreak and while Anna suffers all of these elements her resilience and her martyrdom earns her our admiration an admiration she deserves. Beer is brilliant as she takes us to a time when war shattered so many lives. She gives us insight and although the visuals (namely b/w blending to colour) are sometimes confusing, her plight, as she meets a stranger who holds a secret is compelling. 10GUMS.
