World War I + 100
France, Germany | 2016 | François Ozon
This remake of Ernst Lubitsch’s 1932 drama Broken Lullaby (see 7/8 at 5:00) is one of the most mature and emotionally affecting works by the veteran French director of Swimming Pool and In the House. The film focuses on a young German woman, shattered by the death of her betrothed during the Great War, who one day encounters a mysterious young Frenchman who proceeds to insinuate himself into her life and that of her fiancé’s grieving parents. “A master storyteller is at work.” –Hollywood Reporter. Subtitles. DCP. 113 min.
