First screened in February 2017
Director: François Ozon. Cast: Paula Beer, Pierre Niney, Ernst Stötzner, Marie Gruber, Johann von Bülow, Anton von Lucke, Cyrielle Clair, Alice de Lencquesaing, Axel Wandtke. Screenplay: François Ozon and Philippe Piazzo (based, they insist unknowingly, on the movie Broken Lullaby, directed by Ernst Lubitsch and written by Reginald Berkeley, Samson Raphaelson, and Ernest Vajda).

Twitter Capsule: Starts to show more game and interesting ironies by the finish, but never as clever or well-executed as it seems to think.

VOR:   Springs some plot twists we don't expect and omits others that we do, but still leaves an aftertaste of the overfamiliar.
