The opening film of the 55th Hof International Film Festival THE BLACK SQUARE by Peter Meister has been launched online. The film, awarded the German Cinema New Talent Award "Best Film" at the festival as well as the Hof Critics' Prize, is hilarious entertainment:
Oh no, oh no, THE BLACK SQUARE is missing. And how “unfortunate” that it is the $60 million Malevich artwork. What are two clumsy crooks dressed as Elvis and David Bowie, a woman with a keen sense of art and a couple of Russian gangsters doing on a cruise ship?
