The Palme d’or 2023 unveils its first images! “Anatomy of a fall” by Justine Triet will be released this summer, precisely on August 23, 2023. Here is the trailer.
This is one of the most anticipated auteur films of the coming weeks, each of the previews of which sold out: Anatomy of a fall!
The film directed by Justine Triet was indeed distinguished by the supreme award at the last Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or, the 10th going to a French film, and only the 3rd given to a director.
Palme d’or to Anatomy of a fall: what is this French film awarded by Cannes 2023?
Here are the first images of the film which will arrive on our screens on August 23rd. A tense trailer, giving insight into the mystery that hovers throughout the film.
How did Samuel die, found at the foot of a chalet after a fall? Suicide or homicide? The feature film will tell the investigation, for suspicious death, and the trial of Sandra, his companion. Anatomy of a Fall will dissect this couple…
The screenplay is co-written by Justine Triet and Arthur Harari.
Anatomy of a Fall is based on a very rich scenario, mixing genres, and which never goes where it is expected. It is both the drama of a couple whose fall is told in the feature film, but also and above all a thriller and a trial film. For the anecdote, Justine Triet initially thought maybe to make a series of it, and her producers encouraged her to make a film of it.
Who is Justine Triet, the 2023 Palme d’Or?
Remember that Anatomy of a Fall is the French director’s fourth feature film, after The Battle of Solferino (2013), Victoria (2016) and Sibyl (2019). The latter had been selected in competition at Cannes, but left empty-handed.
After Victoria and Sibyl, both led by Virginie Efira, Justine Triet has chosen, for this new film, the main actress Sandra Hüller, very noticed at Cannes in the film Toni Erdmann in 2016. In the cast, we also find Swann Arlaud, the young Milo Machado Graner, Antoine Reinartz, Samuel Theis and Jehnny Beth.
The film is co-produced by Les Films de Pierre (Marie-Ange Luciani, producer of 120 beats per minute, and the recent L’île rouge, both directed by Robin Campillo), and Les Films Pelléas (David Thion and Philippe Martin ).
You will have to wait until August 23, 2023 to discover the film.
