From the movie "Triangle of Sadness" (Cannes Film Festival)
A few days after Biden's visit to Israel, the Jerusalem Film Festival will kick off.
It will take place on Thursday, July 21, and today festival directors announced the identity of the film that will launch it.
Thankfully, this is one of the hottest films in the world of cinema right now - "Triangle of Sadness", which only a month ago won the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival.
In the best tradition, the screening will take place in the Sultan's Pool and is open to the general public.
Details on purchasing tickets can be found on the official website.
The film speaks English, but was directed by the Swede Ruben Ostland, who already won the Golden Palm five years ago for "The Square."
It begins with a scene that looks like it was torn from "Seinfeld", in which a male and female model have an argument over the question of who should pay the bill.
His second act already looks like the "white lotus" with a hangover, and takes place in a cruise ship where the workers are the enraged slaves of the oligarchic tourists, until the cruise gets out of hand and leads to two memorable passages.
One includes a vomiting marathon and another a ping-pong of capitalist and Marxist quotes.
The third section is already a combination of "Lost", "Beelzebub" and "Twilight Zone".
The excellent cast includes some anonymous discoveries, as well as Woody Harrelson in a huge performance as a drunken captain.

"The Triangle of Sadness" also joins "Parasites" and "Joker" in that it best describes the cruel balance of power between those who have and those who do not, and then what happens when that balance goes wrong.
He goes a few steps further than his two predecessors, adding a few more layers to them, including a reversal of gender forces.
The film begins with a scene where men are wanted and continues with scenes in which a woman sexually exploits a man younger than her - and we are usually used to seeing the opposite.
If you can not see the "Triangle of Sadness" in Jerusalem, you will be happy to hear that the film was purchased for distribution and will be screened during the year in the Lev Cinema network, but of course seeing it in front of everyone on the giant screen of the Sultan's Pool is an experience.
His screening at Cannes was one of the most amazing experiences I have had at the cinema, and the audience just raised the ceiling time and time again with roars of laughter.
