Revealing Mistakes
During the press conference scene in the film, the time displayed on Christian's LCD watch is clearly visible and jumps from 14:53 to 15:50 when we cut to a participant who asks a very short question.
Ostlund stated that it was challenging for Moss and West to adapt to Swedish direction, but they eventually adjusted.

Most of the filming of this movie took place from June to October 2016 in Gothenburg, Stockholm, and Berlin. The gallery seen in the film is based on Sweden's Royal Palace.

The square is a winner at the 2017 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

A small portion of the edits was made to finalize the film after its Cannes premiere.

In the film, the incident, where Christian's cell phone is stolen, is based on the real-life experience of director Ruben Ostlund, whose friend was robbed in a similar way.
