FRANÇOIS OZON

HE MAY BE ONE OF FRANCE’S MOST FAMOUS FILM DIRECTORS BUT FRANÇOIS OZON IS FAMOUSLY ENIGMATIC – AND HIS NEW FILM WILL ONLY ADD TO THAT REPUTATION

Born in Paris in 1967, François Ozon is so prolific as a director and screenwriter that he’s been called the Woody Allen of France. As he’s gay and oft en coaxes career-defining performances from his female actors, he’s also been called the French Almodóvar. But while

Allen and Almodóvar have distinctive voices as auteurs, Ozon has always resisted the label – and from his body of work so far it’s difficult to get a sense of who he is either as a director or as a man.

Hi most popular films include the classic French farce Potiche, the riotous musical comedy 8 Women, and the erotic thriller Swimming Pool. His latest, Frantz, is a melancholic black and white drama set in a small German town aft er World War I. It opens with a young woman called Anna mourning at the grave of Frantz, her fiancé who was killed in battle in France. A few days later a young Frenchman, Adrien, also lays flowers at the grave. As he begins a friendship with Anna, we discover that he’s telling a lie about his relationship with Frantz. And, coming so soon aft er the German defeat, this is a lie with the potential to unlock intense passions.

About Winq

The latest issue of the newly relaunched Winq features an exclusive interview with AFC Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, the first Premier League manager to go on the record and say he’d be happy to have a gay footballer in his team. Elsewhere, there are interviews with French film director François Ozon, award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, Olympic dressage rider Spencer Wilton, and Gigi Chao, the Hong Kong lesbian whose father offered millions to any man who could turn her straight. We travel to Japan and Mexico, report on what life is like for LGBT+ people in Ghana, and explore the reasons behind the rising popularity of the far right amongst gay men in France. Packed with insightful commentary from a newly expanded panel of columnists, Winq is the journal for gay gentlemen by Attitude.
