75th Cannes Film Festival: Ruben Ostlund takes away second Palme d’Or with ‘Triangle of Sadness’

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, raucous satire on modern-day capitalism.

This will be Ostlund’s second Palme win after “The Square” in 2017.

The film revolves around models, millionaires and their various trophy partners — and abandons them in deep water, forcing the survivors to reconstruct a desert-island society where money holds no power.

Korean star Song Kang-ho won the best actor award for his performance in “Broker” by Kore-Eda Hirokazu, just two years after Parasite, in which Song also starred.

Song thanked all those “who love Korean cinema.”

“Broker” is about a woman dropping off an unwanted child in a “baby box” for adoption.

Meanwhile, Zar Amir-Ebrahimi won the best actress award for her performance in Ali Abbasi’s “Holy Spider” as an Iranian journalist in pursuit of a serial killer murdering prostitutes in the holy city of Mashhad.

“I have came a long way to be on this stage tonight. It was not an easy story,” said Ebrahimi.
