Cannes [France]May 29 (ANI): The 75th Cannes Film Festival on Saturday gave away the Palme d’Or for best film to Swedish filmmaker Ruben Ostlund’s “Triangle of Sadness”, a broad, fierce satire on modern capitalism.
This will be Österlund’s second Palm win after “The Square” 2017.
The film revolves around models, millionaires and their various trophy partners – and abandons them in deep water, forcing the survivors to reconstruct a society on deserted islands where money has no power.
Korean star Song Kang-ho won the Best Actor award for her performance in “Broker” by Kore-Eda Hirokazu, just two years after Parasite, where Song also starred.
Song thanked everyone “who loves Korean film.” “Broker” is about a woman who leaves an unwanted child in a “baby box” for adoption.
Meanwhile, Tsar Amir-Ebrahimi won the Best Actress award for his role in Ali Abbasi’s “Holy Spider” as an Iranian journalist in the hunt for a serial killer who murders prostitutes in the holy city of Mashhad.
“I have come a long way to stand on this stage tonight. It was not an easy story,” said Ebrahimi.
Indian filmmaker Shaunak Sen’s documentary All That Breathes has won the Golden Eye Documentary Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. (ANI)
