The Square

Christian is the curator of an art museum in Stockholm. During an interview with Anne, he is stumped when she reads him a text about one of the art pieces in his museum which she found on the museum's website and asks him to explain it to her. Clearly having no knowledge of the text and not understanding it, he stumbles through an answer which does not address the text in question.

After he is pulled into a confrontation in a pedestrian zone, Christian notices that his smartphone and wallet are missing, presumably stolen in a confidence trick. He is able to track the position of his phone on his computer and when he and an assistant notice that the phone has stopped moving and seems to be in a large apartment block, they write a threatening anonymous letter demanding the return of the phone and wallet by depositing them in a nearby convenience store. They print dozens of copies of the letter and Christian throws a copy in the mailbox of each apartment late one night. Several days later, a package for Christian is actually deposited at the store and it contains the phone and the completely untouched wallet. Read more on Wikipedia.
