Edge Entertainment proudly presents a new high profile acquisition, Frantz. Directed by François Ozon, the film received critical acclaim at the world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and will be released across Scandinavia in 2017.
In a small German town after World War I, Anna mourns daily at the grave of her fiancé Frantz, killed in battle in France. One day a young Frenchman, Adrien, also lays flowers at the grave. His presence so soon after the German defeat ignites both tensions and passions.
Frantz is the latest film by French director François Ozon (In the House, Eight Women, Potiche). The film premiered in competition at the Venice Film Festival where actress Paula Beer also won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Newcomer for her role as the grieving Anna. It was also screened to much acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival.
- We are extremely pleased to have acquired the highly acclaimed Frantz and to launch it across Scandinavia in 2017, says Ignas Scheynius, Chairman of the Board at Edge Entertainment.
Frantz is acquired from Films Distribution for Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland. Edge also acquired the Danish Pay TV rights for the film. Frantz will be released in 2017.
