Swedish Satire ‘The Square’ Wins the Palme D’or at Cannes

2017 Cannes Film Festival

Swedish satire The Square is the big winner of Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Ruben Östlund’s 142-minute film convinced the Pedro Almodóvar’s Competition Jury with its wry and sometimes absurd humor.

The Grand Prix went to hotly buzzed 12o Beats Per Minute by Robin Campillo.

Loveless, directed by Russian writer-director Andrey Zvyagintsev, took the jury prize.
