FRANTZ (12a)

Rialto Film Night
In German with English subtitles

One of world cinema’s most prolific auteurs, François Ozon (Swimming Pool, In the House) returns with the moving and poetic period drama Frantz, an elegant reimagining of the story behind Ernst Lubitsch’s undersung 1932 drama Broken Lullaby.

In a small German town in 1919, Anna mourns every day at the grave of her fiancé, Frantz, who was killed in battle during World War I. One day she spies a mysterious young Frenchman, Adrien, also laying flowers at the grave. Together they begin to bond over their shared grief, though Anna is intrigued by the enigmatic nature of Adrien’s relationship with her fiancé. As the pair become increasingly close, long buried secrets are revealed that will change the fabric of their lives and take them across a wearied and battle-scarred Europe.

Shot with stunning black-and-white photography, Frantz is a masterfully told story of romance, grief and guilt featuring two remarkable lead performances from newcomers Paula Beer and Pierre Niney. At once graceful and and gripping, it is an intimate and timely exploration of healing and forgiveness across European borders.

“Frantz is the work of a rascal, but a rascal in an unusually reflective frame of mind. Even with its mysteries solved, you can’t help but keep turning it over.” THE TELEGRAPH

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the beer than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Voodoo. Media is manipulation.
Why Voodoo?

The word conjures up a lot of different images in people’s minds. But for us it means the controlling of others using an external force. And in the 21st Century that external force is the media. Newspapers, TV, magazines, social media, radio, blogs, vlogs and even those little stickers people randomly put on bus shelters. They tell us what clothes to wear, what size we should be, what to do with our hair, what car to drive and even who we should and should not be afraid of.

In the words of Alice Cooper:
“Your world full of creeps
Zombies walk the street
9 to 5 barely alive
Have a beer go to sleep
And start all over again”

The worst part is we believe we’re doing it all out of choice. But if this were true why are we becoming increasingly unhappy? Our mental health is deteriorating. Depression, eating disorders and suicide rates are on the rise. In fact, latest figures show that female suicide rates in the UK are at their highest for a decade. Voodoo is our little way of saying ‘NO!’ to this mass media and ‘YES!’ to friendship, love, fun and support.

Top name acts from around the world will be performing to say no to this negativity and fight against the media stereotypes. Join the revolution!
