Das Schwarze Quadrat

Vincent (Bernhard Schütz, A Most  Wanted Man), a struggling art thief and failed artist, has stolen Malewitsch’s legendary abstract painting, 'Black Square'. The sale to a Russian oligarch and his art expert, Martha (Sandra Hüller, Toni Erdmann), is set to take place on a cruise ship.

When Vincent and his younger partner, Nils (Jacob Matschenz), realise that their accomplice with the tickets and fake ID's is a no-show, they desperately overpower two men to sneak their way aboard.

To their horror they quickly learn that their victims are part of the cruise's entertainment.  Desperate not to blow their cover, they are forced to become David Bowie and Elvis Presley doubles – with varying degrees of success! Despite their best efforts, it is not long before passengers and crew discover their true identities and the value of their loot. A wild goose chase for the 'Black Square' on the high seas ensues.

The feature film debut of director-screenwriter Peter Meister, The Black Square is an amusing mixture of crime caper and black comedy.
