Swedish filmmaker Ruben Ostlund led one of his now trademark primal screams inside the Palais tonight as his latest film, Triangle Of Sadness, was crowned with the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or. This is the second time Ostlund has won the prestigious prize, following 2017’s The Square.
Ostlund tonight joined an elite group of filmmakers who have taken two Palmes, including the Dardenne brothers who were awarded a special 75th anniversary prize this evening for their Tori And Lokita.
Contrary to the wild and wacky closing ceremony of last year’s Cannes Film Festival, tonight’s event was a very straightforward affair.
