It’s all gone wrong in February, firstly the publicised date has moved from the first (and the 1st) Thursday in the month to the 8th due to a booking mixup, and secondly we’ve had to replace the original film “My Friend in the Park” due to the licence availability… sorry for the confusion…!
Frantz is a mostly black and white film set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War. The story follows Anna who’s fiancé, Frantz has been killed in the war and Adrien, a French veteran of the war who mysteriously arrives in town placing flowers on Franz’s grave.
Not wanting to give anything away I’ll stop there, it’s a twisty-turny mystery that has had very good reviews (not that that’s always a good thing – remember The Master) but hopefully this one will go down well with the Keynsham audience!
