Claire Denis, Lukas Dhont, the Dardenne brothers and Park Chan-wook also received awards this evening.
The closing ceremony of 75th Cannes Film Festival just ended, hosted as planned by Virginie Efira. President Vincent Lindon and her jury (Jasmine Trinca, Noomi Rapace, Rebecca Hall, Deepika Padukone, Ladj Ly, Asghar Farhadi, Joachim Trier and Jeff Nichols) delivered their verdict, once again with great emotion. As for the opening, Lindon had prepared a strong speech…and full of wit. Evoking his “single mandate” as president, he had fun with his real status, which gave him a voice, as for all his jurors, in order to elect their favorite films of this edition (“I had one voice among nine, certainly audible but far from being preponderant, that’s the downside of democracy, but that’s how it is!”). A mission that obviously pleased him a lot, since he even demanded a renewal, like a politician: “We need four more years!”he proclaimed in English to the international audience.
So which movies got the most votes? Here is the complete winners of the Cannes Film Festival 2022. Note that a prize has been specially created this year for the 75th anniversary of the festival. It was handed over to Tori and Lokitaby the Dardenne brothers, who have already won two Palmes d’Or for Rosetta (1999) and The Child (2005). As for the big winner of the evening, he was also an award-winning director: Ruben Östlund received a second Palme d’Or for Without filter (Triangle of Sadness), five years later The Square.
