Justine Triet’s Oscar contender Anatomy of a Fall was the big winner at the 29th Lumiere Awards, France’s equivalent of the Golden Globes, picking up three trophies, including best film and best actress for star Sandra Hüller.
Triet missed out on the best director trophy, losing to Thomas Cailley for his supernatural family drama The Animal Kingdom but picked up the best screenplay honor for Anatomy of a Fall, sharing it with co-writer Arthur Harari. The mystery thriller premiered in Cannes last year, where it won the Palme d’Or. Anatomy of a Fall won two Golden Globes, for best foreign-language film and best screenplay, and is nominated for seven BAFTAs, including best film.
