In the competition at the 76th Cote d’Azur Film Festival in France, there were a record number of female directors. “Anatomy of a Fall,” which was helmed by Justine Triet, won the Palme d’Or for best film.

On Saturday, the prestigious Cannes Film Festival held its closing ceremony, during which a French thriller won the occasion’s top prize.

Big wins for women as Justine Triet wins the Palme d’Or:

Seven of the 21 films in the competition were directed by women, a record number for the Cannes Film Festival, including both newcomers and renowned auteurs.

Anatomy of a Fall received the coveted Palme d’Or for best film, and Justine Triet, 44, won the top honor.

The third female director to receive the coveted Palme d’Or is Triet. She triumphed over seasoned directors Ken Loach, Wim Wenders, Hirokazu Kore-eda, and others who have each won at least one Palme d’Or.

Sandra Hüller, a German actress, plays a writer in the movie who fights to prove her innocence after being charged with her husband’s murder.

Triet criticized the French government in her acceptance speech for the recent demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron.

She stated: “The country suffered from historic protests over the reform of the pension system. These protests were denied… repressed in a shocking way”

Best Actor and Actress awards

Turkey’s Merve Dizdar won the award for best actress in Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s most recent film, About Dry Grasses, which was a festival favorite.

Japan’s Koji Yakusho won the award for best actor in Wim Wenders’ movie Perfect Days, which is about a Tokyo toilet cleaner.

Zone of Interest, a film about a family living close to Auschwitz, directed by British filmmaker Jonathan Glazer, won the Grand Prix, the second-highest honor after the Palme d’Or.

The Pot-au-Feu, a foodie love story set in a 19th-century French gourmet château, won the prize for best director and was made by French filmmaker Tran Anh Hung, a Vietnamese-born citizen.
