Pass the Titanic! A new boat disaster film is now available to view online. Triangle of Sadness, directed by Ruben Ostlund and starring Harris Dickinson, Woody Harrelson, and the late Charlbi Dean, follows a group of yachting experts. Sounds tranquil, doesn’t it? Wrong. What was meant to be a peaceful holiday for the wealthy turns into a Lord of the Flies-like situation where they are forced to find out how to survive on an uninhabited island.
Since its debut in Cannes, when it won the Palme d’Or, Triangle of Sadness has earned widespread recognition and appreciation from critics. This film’s humor, stunning photography, and vomit (yeah, you read that correctly) will keep you on your toes and have you proclaiming “I sell crap” immediately after viewing it. You should be informed that you may suffer a severe visceral reaction while viewing; otherwise, you should be fine.

What is the plot summary for Triangle of Sadness?
Triangle of Sorrow is divided into three sections. The film begins with Carl (Harris Dickinson), a male model, and several models attending a casting call. It’s a peculiar sequence in which the interviewer asks the boys to practice modeling for a “smiley brand” (H&M) where the consumer may pretend to be them and a “grumpy brand” (Balenciaga) where they are looking down on their customer. When Carl actually enters the casting call to meet with the casting director, the origin of the film’s title is revealed when he is instructed to “relax his triangle of grief,” alluding to the region between his eyebrows. The scene then fades to the titles, which display the title “Part 1: Carl & Yaya.”
The first time we see them is during what looks to be a “socially aware” fashion show, where messages such as “everyone is equal,” “act now,” and “love now” are displayed on a screen in the rear. Yaya (Charlbi Dean) is a far more successful model than Carl, who waits in the background and watches her walk the catwalk. In fact, this is what sparks their first major disagreement, as they try to determine who will pay for dinner after the fashion show. Carl contends that Yaya stated she would pay last time, and despite the fact that she earns more money than he does, Yaya argues that it’s dumb. However, she acknowledges that she needs to know she would be taken care of if she is ever unable to work.
Following the conclusion of the debate, the picture shifts to the wide waters and a yacht, accompanied by the title “Part 2: The Yacht.” This time, the film no longer focuses just on Yaya and Carl, but also on the crew and other tourists. The opening scene aboard the boat introduces the crew, notably the servers, to whom Paula (Vicki Berlin), the chief of staff, explains the regulations. “Always ‘yes, sir!’” “Yes, ma’am!” she exclaims as the service staff braces themselves for a generous gratuity from the guests. As Yaya and Carl relax on the deck and enjoy the yacht’s amenities (Yaya is an influencer, therefore the voyage is complimentary), they meet the other guests: Dmitry (Zlatko Buri), who “sells shit,” his wife Vera (Sunnyi Melles), and his luxury wife Ludmilla (Linda Anborg); elderly couple Clementine (Amanda Walker) and her bomb-selling husband Winston (Oliver Ford Davies); wheelchair-bound Therese (Iris Berben), whose stroke leaves her unable to speak (“in den wolken” or “nien” are the only (Henrik Dorsin).
Guests are extremely demanding of the wait staff, crew, and servers. The ship’s demise begins when Vera orders server Alicia (Alicia Eriksson) and the rest of the crew to go swimming, even the chefs, on the day of the sumptuous captain’s dinner with the drunken captain Thomas Smith (Woody Harrelson). As the guests strain to eat their lunch and use the toilet while the ship looks to be on rough waters, a vomiting festival ensues. Thomas and Dmitry engage in a verbal battle in the ship’s control room, exchange capitalist and socialist quotations and spouting historical phrases and ideologies. Before a crew of pirates toss bombs on the ship, causing it to explode, captain Smith appropriately reads from a book: “For every million-dollar bomb dropped, somebody makes a million.” Only a handful of the crew and passengers escape, landing “a few hours later” on a neighboring island, bringing us to the conclusion: “Part 3: The Island.”
What is the Explanation of the Triangle of Sadness Ending?
The guests and crew members that survived the explosion include Dmitry, Carl, Yaya, Yarmo, Therese, Paula, and Nelson, who worked in the engine room (Jean-Christophe Folly). The next day, toilet manager Abigail arrives in a large lifeboat with water and additional goodies (Dolly de Leon). In the beginning, Paula commands her to distribute her food and drink to everyone. At evening, though, Abigail, who caught the fish for dinner and built the fire herself, assumes leadership. “Who am I?” she inquires. Each participant must shout “Captain” in order to receive another little piece of fish.
Thus starts their island existence and everyday rituals. Carl and Nelson are first tasked with watching after Therese, while Yaya and Paula are let to sleep in the lifeboat with Abigail. Carl and Nelson find pretzel sticks in the backpack Abigail left behind and share them with Therese. However, the next day, Abigail and the other ladies question them and reprimand them for eating them without sharing. Abigail receives Dmitry’s watches as a promise of wealth “after they return,” but Dmitry serves no other function except guiding them with a lantern. Just as Yaya’s appearance allowed her and Carl to sail for free on the boat, Carl’s appearance allows him to have additional food and a pleasant place to sleep with Abigail, who specifically requests that he remain with her. Initially, he consults Yaya to determine what he can and cannot do, but eventually, he grows accustomed to staying with Abigail in return for goodies.
The gang looks to function well together as the days pass, but the men continue to be unemployed and without a true purpose on the island; at one point, they slaughter a female donkey to prove they can contribute to the community. During a celebration for the men’s successful hunt, Carl and Abigail sit close to one another, much to Yaya’s annoyance. In a jealous rage, Yaya kisses Yarmo before leaving. Later that evening, it is shown that Carl and Abigail indeed engage in a consenting sexual relationship, with Abigail “purchasing sex with the common meal.” They have difficulty deciding whether or not they want their relationship to be regarded as a couple in the public eye. Carl is unsure if he should end his relationship with Yaya, and Abigail does not wish to interfere.
The following day, Yaya informs Abigail that she would be taking a stroll and exploring the island, and Abigail agrees to accompany her. During the stroll, Yaya expresses her admiration for Abigail’s accomplishments on the island, including how she “managed to run a fucking matriarchy” and “domesticated all the elderly alpha males.” Therese encounters a vendor selling designer handbags, revealing that the boat residents are not the only ones on the island. This is quickly confirmed by Yaya, who shows Abigail the elevator to an island luxury resort. The two embrace, and Yaya thinks that they should go, but Abigail resists, stating that she has to urinate. Abigail must decide whether she wishes to return to her previous life or preserve her position as captain at this point. She opts for the latter, grabs a rock, and moves slowly towards Yaya, who offers her an assistant position. The picture transitions to an image of Carl jogging down the same path as Yaya and Abigail, presumably in an effort to locate them.
