Last May, the movie world got its second big surprise of the year (after this one) when Pedro Almodóvar announced the winners of the 70th Cannes Film Festival. The film taking home the Palme d’Or turned out to be neither Happy End (from Michael Haneke, the Austrian director who’s become a fixture of the event) nor BPM (the gay-rights movie that left Almodóvar bawling). Instead, the prize went to Ruben Östlund’s The Square, a film that follows an art museum curator’s (named Christian, played by Claes Bang) hapless attempts to both recover his stolen wallet and oversee marketing efforts for the titular special exhibition.
