Noomi and James D’Arcy are currently shooting the Apple TV+ series “Constellations” in Germany. On their day off on June 08, they attended the NRW Summer Branch Meeting, a function to promote recent and upcoming German produced productions. Created and written by Peter Harness (The War of the Worlds), Constellation stars Rapace as Jo, a woman who returns to Earth after a disaster in space – only to discover that key pieces of her life seem to be missing. The action-packed space adventure is an exploration of the dark edges of human psychology, one woman’s desperate quest to expose the truth about the hidden history of space travel and for her to recover all that she has lost.

Swedish director Ruben Ostlund’s class warfare comedy “Triangle of Sadness” won the Palme d’Or on Saturday. The awards were selected by a nine-member jury headed by French actor Vincent Lindon and presented Saturday in a closing ceremony inside Cannes’ Grand Lumière Theater. The jury’s second prize, the Grand Prix, was shared between Lukas Dhont’s drama “Close” and French filmmaking legend Claire Denis’ “Stars at Noon.” Korean star Song Kang Ho was named best actor for Hirokazu Kore-eda’s film “Broker,” while Best actress went to Zar Amir Ebrahimi for her performance as a journalist in Ali Abbasi’s “Holy Spider.” Saturday’s closing ceremony brought to a close a Cannes that attempted to fully resuscitate the annual France extravaganza that was canceled in 2020 by the pandemic and saw modest crowds last year. As Noomi mentioned in an interview during the festival, she is now off to start shooting the Apple TV+ series “Constellation”.

The Cannes Film Festival has entered its second week (it will run until Saturday) and Noomi has attended lots of additional events and screenings at the croisette. A list of all new albums can be found below. As part of the jury, Noomi is also interviewed on the festival’s official site, in which she gives us insight into her favorite films and performances.
The very first time I was in Cannes, I was very nervous, I was here because The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was out in the world and I came here. I was in this big black dress like a big armor. Then I went in Grand Théâtre Lumière, I sat down and I didn’t know what I was going to see. It was A Prophet. The movie just grabbed me and I felt so new born. When the lights came out, I cried so much that I was wet. I stood up and all the cast was standing behind me. Jacques Audiard is one of my favorite director, he was there with Tahar Rahim. It was such a powerful moment that I forgot about myself totally and I was like a mess. (Noomi Rapace, Cannes Film Festival, May 2022)

After what was rumored to be a long search, Thierry Fremaux has found his president for the 2022 Cannes Film Festival Jury. According to The Playlist, legendary French actor Vincent Lindon, who starred in last year’s Palme d’Or winner, “Titane,” will take the mantle following Spike Lee‘s reign last year. Lindon also won the Best Actor prize at the festival in 2015 for “The Measure of a Man.” Joining Lindon will be a slew of well-known international film figures who also happen to be members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (for those paying attention). Those members include director and actress Rebecca Hall (“Passing”), director Jeff Nichols (“Loving”), Norweigan director Joachim Trier (“The Worst Person in the World”) two-time Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi (“A Separation”), actress Noomi Rapace (“Prometheus”) and French director Ladj Ly (“Les Miserables”). Also on the jury are Indian actress Deepika Padukone and Italian actress, and director Jasmine Trinca (2017 winner of Best Actress in Un Certain Regard for “Fortunata”). Trinca will also be on hand for a special screening of her directorial debut, “Marcel!” In a statement from the Festival, Lindon remarked, “It is a great honor and source of pride to be entrusted, in the midst of the tumult of all the events we are going through in the world, with the splendid, weighty task of chairing the Jury of the 75th International Cannes Film Festival. With my Jury, we will strive to take the best possible care of the films of the future, all of which carry the same secret hope of courage, loyalty, and freedom, with a mission to move the greatest number of women and men by speaking to them of their common wounds and joys. Culture helps the human soul to rise and hope for tomorrow.” Lindon becomes the first French jury president since Isabelle Huppert in 2009. The 2022 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 17-28.
While “Lamb” has been released in most countries around the globe, theatrically and/or on-demand, there are still some countries waiting to see Valdimar Jóhannsson’s arthouse hit – Sweden being one of the last countries to see a theatrical release.
