From Tuesday 16 to Saturday 27 May 2023, the 76th edition of Cannes film festival took place on the Croisette. As every year, many films were in competition to try to win the coveted Palme d’or. After more than 10 days of uninterrupted screenings at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, which once again hosted the biggest stars on the planetthe jury delivered its verdict on Saturday May 27, 2023. On that day, France 2 viewers were able to discover live the coronation of the French director Justine Trietwho won the precious Palme d’or for his film entitled Anatomy of a fall.
Asked about the filmmaker in an interview with the JDD Sunday, June 4, 2023, Eddy Mitchell and Sabine Azéma were not tender with her. “This girl is thinking about her retirement, she doesn’t interest me. I’m not going to see his movie. What I liked about Cannes were the presence of Harrison Fordby Martin Scorsese“, said the musician. “I’m an actress, not a producer or director. So, sorry if I prefer to keep my innocence, but we’re tired of controversy. I haven’t seen his films. JI’m not sure that his statement makes us want to discover them“, added for its part the actress.
Justine Triet: “The country has been crossed by a historic protest”
As a reminder, Justine Triet sparked controversy by openly criticizing the government during her acceptance speech. “The country has been criss-crossed by an extremely powerful and unanimous historical pension reform protest“, she said, before regretting that this movement was “shockingly denied” by the government. Justine Triet also denounced the “commodification of culture that the neoliberal government defends“, and who is in the process”to break the cultural exception without which [elle] wouldn’t be here today“.”This pattern of dominating power, increasingly uninhibited, breaks out in several areas“, also added the director.
