“Triangle of Sadness”: Sunnyi Melles about throwing up and the shooting
The film is called “Triangle of Sadness”. But you won’t find much more fun at the cinema this year than in this reckoning with the rich, beautiful and powerful on a luxury cruise gone haywire. A conversation with leading actress Sunnyi Melles about throwing up and the shooting.
It’s not every day that you have a chat with a princess about spitting. Sunnyi Melles sits on the edge of a sofa in a luxury hotel in Hamburg, keeps adjusting her rather short black dress and actually just wants to talk about her new film, how fulfilling the work was with the Swedish director Ruben Östlund: “I felt like I had been newly baptized .”
But the conversation with the Swiss actress almost inevitably always comes back to a scene about spitting. With her porcelain-colored skin, the blond cloud on her head and the fine facial features, Melles not only looks aristocratic, she is also a Princess zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn by marriage in real life.
