In fact, Ruben Östlund happily captures the Palme d’Or and makes the entire Lumiére movie hall boil over the Croisette. He made a movie that asks questions that will make you think. His wife Sina Ostlund, who comes from Hamburg, gave him the idea for the film. Robin Ostlund told NDR Kultur shortly before the festival began.

His social satire with Iris Berben, Woody Harrelson is about two models who go on a luxury cruise with billionaires in the South Pacific. The journey ends in absurd disaster when the ship sinks and some survivors manage to escape to a deserted island. The world premiere had already caused a lot of laughter on the part of the audience, and the many ridiculous situations in the film with a disastrous character provided comedic moments.
