The Jury, presided over by two-time Palme d’Or-winning director Ruben Östlund (The Square, Triangle of Sadness) and including directors Maryam Touzani, Julia Ducournau, Rungano Nyoni, Damián Szifron, as well as actors Denis Ménochet, Brie Larson, Paul Dano, and writer Atiq Rahimi, selected Anatomy of a Fall from 21 films in Competition this year – a particularly strong selection.
The Palme d’Or (Golden Palm) is the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival. We are thrilled to have created the visual effects for Anatomy of a Fall, the film that won this year’s Palm.
Triet’s second film in Competition following the 2019 dark comedy Sibyl is a gripping mystery about a writer forced to defend herself in court when she becomes the main suspect in her husband’s ‘murder’. The movie morphs from procedural to courtroom drama, and while it ticks a lot of conventional tropes linked to the genre, Triet and main actress Sandra Hüller keep the confident drama engaging throughout.
