‘Anatomy of a Fruit’ won the Palme d’Or at the 76th Cannes Film Festival. Justine Triet became the third woman in Cannes history to win the award. This time, out of 21 filmmakers, seven were women. He had the last laugh among them.
German actress Sandra Hüller acted in this Triet movie. Triet co-wrote the story with Arthur Harari. The story shows the family of a husband and wife with a visually impaired child.
There were 20 films and one documentary in the running for the Palme d’Or at Cannes. The news that head judge Ruben Östlund chose became clear at midnight yesterday.
Before Justine Triet, only two women have appeared on the list of top honors in the history of this prestigious event. In 1993, New Zealand filmmaker Jane Campione became the first woman to enter the list.
This time there was strong speculation about British film director Jonathan Glazer among the male directors. Glazer competes with the movie ‘The Zone of Interest’. Justin Triet’s ‘Anatomy of a Fall’ movie can be heard very strongly with this. Apart from this, ‘The Old Oak’ by 87-year-old British director Ken Loach, ‘Winter Sleep’ by Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Cilan, ‘Fallen Leaves’ by Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki, and ‘A Brighter Tomorrow’ by Italian director Nani Moratti created intense discussion.
Apart from this, most of the list of awardees in other disciplines did not go as expected. British film director Jonathan Glazer’s ‘The Zone of Interest’ won the second best prize ‘Grand Prix’ at the Cannes festival, according to the announcement of the awards stage yesterday.
The best director award went to Tran Anh Hung, director of ‘Pot Au Pheu’. He is a French producer of Vietnamese origin. Japanese actor Koji Yakusho won Best Actor. She won this award for her performance in Wim Wenders’s “Perfect Days”. Turkish actress Merve Dizda won Best Actress for her performance in Nuri Bilge Cilan’s ‘About Dry Grass’. Yuji Sakamoto won the award for the screenplay of the Japanese film ‘Monster’. Aki Kaurismäki won the Jury Prize for the film ‘Fallen Leaves’. ‘Flora Anna Buda’ won Palme d’Or for short film.
Among them, British filmmaker Molly Manning Walker won the best film award in the ‘An Sarte category’ on Friday.
