The Square (2017)

  • Comedy, Drama
  • 2h 25m

From Force Majeure director Ruben Ostlund comes the Palme d’Or winning satire - The Square. A poignant reflection of our times - about the sense of community, moral courage and the affluent person’s need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain age - Ostlund’s comedy stars Claes Bang as Christian, the respected curator of a contemporary art museum. Confident he is a ‘good man’, Christian commissions an artistic installation that encourages visitors to reflect upon their responsibility to be kind to their fellow human beings. However, the theft of Christian’s mobile phone initiates a series of actions that exhibits how difficult it can be to live up to your own ideals before erupting into an apocalyptic, self-imposed existential crisis. THE SQUARE is a hysterically funny insight into the disconnect between how we see ourselves and the reality of our behaviour.
