Two films from across the waters that should compel your attention. The Salesman is a “complex, compelling drama” about a two actors in Iran. When the wife is assaulted, her husband becomes a bull in his attempts to find the attacker, while she struggles to cope. This is a “powerful expression of lives, and dreams, interrupted” (Fort Worth Star). Frantz is a survivor’s drama set the immediate aftermath of the First World War. Anna (Paula Beer in a breakthrough performance) is a young woman who lost her fiancé in the trenches. Her solitude is broken by the arrival of Adrien, a French veteran who comes to pay respects at Frantz’s grave. ”A fine cast, haunting period detail and a provocative, twisting story” (Globe and Mail) make this worthy viewing (Globe and Mail)
