previous1/4next



The Square by director Ruben Östlund 2017.
Starring Claes Bang, Elisabeth Moss, Dominic West, Terry Notary, Marina Schiptjenko, Christopher Læssø, Daniel Hallberg, Martin Sööder and Mikael Olsson among others. Produced by Plattform Produktion.

The Square is a poignant satirical drama reflecting our times - about the sense of community, moral courage and the affluent person's need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain world.

Winner of the prestigious Palme d'Or at Cannes Film Festival 2017.
