The movie you want to see The square The compassionate sanctuary (The Square)

The sacred sanctuary of The Square, a movie that won the highest prize Palma D'Or at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Swedish native director Louben Ostrund wrote about the opportunity to make this work "It was revealed that it was a katsuage shot by boys who happened in a shopping mall in Sweden. Even though there were plenty of adults on the spot, no one was a victim I did not try to help the child, he also did not ask for help, just what the "bystander effect" appeared was explained. This is a scene where a performer (Terry Notary) imitating a monkey at the dinner venue will get inundated and confusing. It dismantles the mechanism of intolerance not only because of the uncomfortable of people but also because people are indifferent. The fact that everyone suddenly begins to knock on himself after someone has begun to cast an objection is similar to the actions of people in the press and the net. In the comment on movies, it seems like a movie that can be evaluated and criticized from various perspectives. Some remind people of "bystander effect" that everyone is experiencing, disturbing "heart", and at the end of 2017 some people mention "the world's top Christmas tree PROJECT" riot. It's a funny satire drama movie that wraps people's "heart balance" with laughter (^ ^) The New York Times is "probably the first movie that drew contemporary art world with correct insight."
