On Saturday, the Cannes Film Festival announced that Swedish filmmaker Ruben Ostlund’s film “Triangle of Sadness” had received the Palme d’Or for Best Picture.

The 75th-anniversary edition of the film festival got underway, resuming its regular schedule after two years of pandemic setbacks.

The film sends two models on a luxury cruise, only to leave them stranded on a lonely island with a few of the crew and billionaire guests, exploring ideas of beauty and privilege. The toilet attendant showed excellent survival abilities, and social systems are thrown into chaos.

“The thing about Östlund is that he makes you laugh, but he also makes you think,” said Variety in its review of the film. “No matter what sphere he tackles, we’re bound to see the world differently.”

The festival awarded two films the Jury prize: “Close”, a film by Belgian director Lukas Dhont and “Stars at Noon,” by French director Claire Denis.
