Release of the Cannes Palme d’or, as well as a very nice French film, and a disappointment for Cathy Immelen!
Release of the film which won the Palme d’Or a few months ago at the Cannes Film Festival: ”Triangle of Sadness” or ”Sans Filtre” for the title in French.
Signed by the Swedish director Ruben Östlund, who had already won the Palme d’Or in 2017 for ”The Square”, an acerbic criticism of the contemporary art world. He again offers us a satire, this time he cheerfully makes fun of wealth and capitalism in a scathing comedy that does not save itself in outrageously grotesque scenes. The story starts with a couple of influencers/models in this flashy environment, which is that of fashion and social networks, and then it turns into a dissonant joke when our two friends find themselves on a cruise of luxury surrounded by ultra-frique obscene characters, and finally, the 3rd act in Koh-Lanta mode shakes up the balance of power between the wealthy and the less well-off. I personally found that ”Triangle of Sadness” was not very subtle in what it denounces the hypocrisy and cynicism of the most fortunate, but the film has the audacity to clash with its punk and anarchist posture … We sometimes wallow in free trash with, in particular, a scene of collective indigestion on the luxury yacht which caused you either a huge laugh, or total discomfort, but the electroshock is there!
