Cannes Film Festival 2022: Un Certain Regard Winners List

Meanwhile, Vicky Krieps and Adam Bessa were recognized for their performances in Corsage and Harka.

With the conclusion of the Cannes Film Festival, the award ceremony part of the most prestigious film festival in the world officially begins. While fans will have to wait until tomorrow to see the festival’s main jury award their top prizes, including the Palme d’Or, the winners in the Un Certain Regard category have been announced. Italian actress and director Valeria Golino chaired the jury of Un Certain Regard, which runs parallel to the main competition and recognizes films with particularly unique styles or angles. And even by the category’s bold standards, some of this year’s winners probably came as a surprise to festival-goers.

The Worst Ones, Lise Akoka and Romane Gueret’s French film about a film crew shooting in a working-class town, won the Grand Prize, while Joyland, Saim Sadiq’s Pakistani transgender love story, won the Jury Prize. Alexandru Belc took home Best Director for Metronome, while Vicky Krieps and Adam Bessa shared the Best Performance award for their roles in Corsage and Harka, respectively. Maha Haj won Best Screenplay for “Mediterranean Fever” and Lola Quivoron’s “Rodeo” won the Coup de Coeur award. If these winners are any indication of what to expect from the main competition, it should be a very interesting weekend on the Croisette.

IndieWire spoke to Phantom Thread and Bergman Island favorite Krieps about her performance in irreverently feminist Austrian royal drama Corsage. The actress didn’t have much time to prepare for such a demanding role, from incorporating Hungarian into her language repertoire to learning to fencing. “They were very lucky,” she said, “because for some reason, physically, I adapt to things very quickly. Otherwise, a month and a half would not have been enough. So I had to learn fencing from scratch and horseback riding. I knew that, but not side saddles. How do you steer your horse with one leg now? I had a schedule.”
