Triangle of Sadness
Oscars 2023 | 149 min | FSK 12
Fashion model couple Carl and Yaya struggle with the power imbalance in their relationship. A luxury cruise is supposed to bring back passion and new Instagram followers into their relationship. But when a storm hits the luxury yacht, hierarchies are turned upside down among passengers and crew members.
With carefully staged Instagram photos, models Carl (Harris Dickinson) and Yaya (Charlbi Dean) take their followers on a journey through their perfect (fashion) world - around the clock. When the young couple accepts the invitation to a luxury cruise, they meet Russian oligarchs, Scandinavian IT billionaires, British arms dealers, bored wives and a captain (Woody Harrelson) who quotes Marx in a drunken stupor. At first, between sunbathing, small talk and champagne breakfasts, the cruise is absolutely selfie-worthy. But during the captain's dinner a storm comes up and the couple find themselves on a deserted island, together with a group of billionaires and a cleaner (Dolly De Leon) of the ship. Suddenly the hierarchy is turned upside down, because the cleaner is the only one who can make fire and fish.
