Ruben Östlund won the Palme d'Or for the second time with Triangle of Sadness! Also this time, Östlund is serving us a dark satire of the world, especially the most beautiful and richest part of the world.
A cruise ship for the rich and famous goes down
The models Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean) explore frontiers of their relationship and are offered a luxury cruise ship with a gallery of idiosyncratic characters including a Russian oligarch, British arms dealers and an alcoholic captain (Woody Harrelson). After a storm sinks the cruise ship, the survivors are trapped on a deserted island.
This riotous, wacky comedy features a fantastic cast, awkward situations and brilliant dialogue. Östlund makes a wonderful point about class differences with his distinctive, absurd style.
