Anatomy of a Fall by Justine Triet scores a historic double at the Golden Globes

“I don’t know how we got here…” declared Justine Triet in a speech full of emotion.

It’s not really a surprise, but what an accomplishment for Anatomy of a fall. The film of Justine Triet won the Golden Globe for best non-English language film, where it notably faced The Area of ​​Interest by Jonathan Glazer. An almost logical success, as the last Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival was presented as the big favorite in the category by the Hollywood press.

The director did not fail to pay tribute to her cast during her speech: Milo Machado Graner, Sandra Hüller, Antoine Reinartz, Swann Arlaud and even Snoop, the incredible dog in the film:

It’s a film about the truth, the impossibility of grasping it, its construction. I wanted it to be a child’s obsession. This child is here tonight. Thank you Milo for giving us much more than your 13 years. Sandra, thank you for never trying to make this character a perfect heroine, thank you for creating a complex woman who never apologizes for speaking her mind. Antoine, thank you for being the baddest prosecutor of the year, Swann the sexiest lawyer in the French Alps, and Snoop for being yourself, just a dog.”

Winning the Golden Globe for best screenplay was less obvious. The competition was tough, with Oppenheimer, barbie, Killers of the Flower Moon, Poor creatures And Past Lives. But these are good Justine Triet and Arthur Harari who were rewarded. And it’s even historic since it’s the first French film to win this prize.

A good omen for the Oscars. Anatomy of a fall not having been selected to represent France (this is The Passion of Dodin Bouffant who has been chosen), he will probably bet everything on this category. For the Oscar for best actress, the chances of Sandra Hüller will be thinner compared to the favorite long shadows Emma Stone and Lily Gladstonecrowned last night at the Golden Globes in the comedy and drama categories.

In her second speech, Justine Triet did not rekindle the controversy, letting speak of her joy and astonishment at the journey of her trial film which was able to conquer juries, critics and the public despite its austere form.

Thank you so much ! When I started this project, sorry for my English, we were in the chaos of the pandemic. With my life partner, Arthur Harari, we spent our days writing the screenplay for Anatomy of a Fall, stuck in our apartment, and strangely no one died. I remember, we kept saying, ‘okay, we’re having a lot of fun, but it’s radical and dark, no one is going to see this movie. It’s too long, they talk all the time, there’s no music, a couple arguing, a dog vomiting… But I want to make this film, so let’s make a radical film and then we’ll make a series to make money’ I don’t know how we got here, but thank you for encouraging me to do exactly what I love.
