Sandra Hüller reacts to the Oscar buzz around her films
Both The Zone of Interest and Anatomy of a Fall have proven to be frontrunners for the currently ongoing awards season. The Zone of Interest has both BFTA and Oscar nominations under its belt. Anatomy of a Fall as well, held multiple nominations for this year's Golden Globes including Best Actress for Hüller. Additionally, both films hold Oscar nominations for Best Picture.
Earlier in May of 2023, the Justine Triet film also bagged the Cannes Film Festival's highest honour, the Palme d'Or. In a recent interview with Variety, speaking about all the attention and appreciation, she said, "I find myself giggling in the morning because it is so nice. When I walk my dog, people are shouting congratulations at me. People I’ve never seen before."
Sandra Hüller was conflicted about her character's innocence
Sandra Hüller also revealed how Anatomy of a Fall director, Justine Triet, refrained from revealing to her whether her namesake character was innocent or guilty. For the unversed, Hüller plays a writer - named Sandra, who is accused of murdering her husband, an alleged occurrence only their blind son was witness to.
She said, "Of course I wanted to know whether she was guilty or not, but my director didn’t tell me. She just said a horrible, horrible sentence - 'play her like she’s innocent." Hüller however, was a big believer in the narrative put forth in Anatomy of a Fall, affirming it as having "the perfect script".
