About the film
But disaster strikes when Christian’s phone is stolen, his new performance art piece turns dangerously awry, and his marketing campaign goes viral for all the wrong reasons. As Christian desperately tries to hold onto his own ego while his comfortable life spirals out of control, his good intentions are increasingly abandoned, with hilarious results.
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the most talked-about film of the season, “The Square” is a laugh-out-loud comedy for the modern age - a merciless satire of modern art, hypocrisy, and fragile male ego.
