From the movie "Triangle of Sadness" (Cannes Film Festival)

Exciting news for film lovers: Ruben Ostland, one of the most prominent and hottest directors in recent years, will be the guest of honor at the Jerusalem Film Festival at the end of the month.

The Swedish director will come to him with his latest and first English-language film, "The Triangle of Sadness."

Just two months after winning the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival, the film will open the festival in the capital, and in the best tradition it will happen on a huge screen screening in front of the general public at the Sultan's Pool.



Austland started out about twenty years ago, but made the real international breakthrough thanks to his film "Force Majeure" about a decade ago.

The film won numerous international awards, and was also the basis for a remake (and horror) with Will Farrell and Julia Louis Dreyfus.

In 2017 he won the Golden Palm for the first time with "The Square", one of the great films of the previous decade, and this year he joined a very small and exclusive club that won it twice.

"The Triangle of Sadness" begins with a scene that looks like it was torn from "Seinfeld", in which a male and female model have an argument over 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 marathon of vomiting 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, and also 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 distributed during the year by the Lev Cinema chain, but of course to see it in front of everyone on the huge 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.
