The 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival came to an end on Saturday with the presentation of the Palme d’Or and other awards that were selected by the nine-member jury headed by French actor Vincent Lindon. The extravaganza was cancelled in 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic and saw modest crowds last year.

‘Triangle of Sadness,’ a class warfare comedy by Swedish director Ruben Ostlund, won the Palme d’Or, which is the highest prize awarded at the film festival. 

“We wanted after the screening (for people) to go out together and have something to talk about. All of us agree that the unique thing with cinema is that we’re watching together. So we have to save something to talk about but we should also have fun and be entertained,” said Ostlund, who won the award for the second time.

Korean actor Song Kang Ho won the best actor award for his performance in Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s film ‘Broker’. The best actress award, on the other hand, went to Zar Amir Ebrahimi for her performance as a journalist in Ali Abbasi’s ‘Holy Spider.’
