Directed by Ruben Östlund
2017, Sweden, 142 min
Swedish with English subtitles

Swedish provocateur Ruben Östlund, the director of Force Majeure, returns with The Square, one of his most audacious pieces to date and winner of the Cannes prestigious Palme d’Or. A no holds barred satire of the post-modern art world, the film follows Christian, the curator of Sweden’s most cutting-edge art museum. Imperious, self centered, and hopelessly befuddled, Christian’s attempts to promote his exhibits are deflected by personal misfortunes. The Square is full of brilliant and dazzling set pieces.

Like an onstage interview gone horribly awry and a performance piece gone even more horribly wrong. The Square is worthy of the great Spanish surrealist Luis Bunuel or Ostlund’s mentor Roy Andersson. – Steve Gravestock, TIFF

Reviews

A thrillingly weird study of an art gallery director whose life goes into meltdown after his mobile phone is stolen...sprawling and daringly surreal....extraordinary set pieces. This is high wire cinema. - The Guardian
