Anatomy of a Fall | Neon | Palme D'Or winner

Recommended Posts




UPDATE: French filmmaker Justine Triet has become only the third woman to win the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize Palme d’Or in the event’s 76-year history, scooping the award for Anatomy of a Fall. She joins Jane Campion (1993’s The Piano), and, more recently, Julia Ducournau who won for Titane in 2021 (Ducournau was also on the jury this year).


Anatomy of a Fall follows Sandra (Sandra Hüller), a German writer, her French husband Samuel, and their eleven-year-old son Daniel who live a secluded life in a remote town in the French Alps. When Samuel is found dead in the snow below their chalet, the police question whether he committed suicide or was killed. Samuel’s death is treated as suspicious, presumed murder, and Sandra becomes the main suspect.


Neon picked it up during the festival, giving the distributor bragging rights to the four latest Palme d’Or winners including Triangle of Sadness, Titane and Parasite.

Two version of trailers so far. Strangely US trailer avoid non-English dialogue scene entirely whereas international trailer has a significant non-English dialogue. I heard French was the most spoken language in the movie. 


Limited release on 13 Oct in US. This is the fourth back-to-back Palme d'Or win for Neon and they release all of them in US during early October.
