Palm d'Or winner 2022
Ruben Östlund won the Palme d'Or for the second time with Triangle of Sadness! This time we are served a very dark satire on the world, especially the most beautiful and richest part. The models Carl and Yaya 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.
