Co-written by John Ajvide Lindqvist, author of Swedish vampire movie Let the Right One In, Border is the winner of the top prize in the Cannes Film Festival’s Un  Certain Regard section. The film contains elements of Nordic folklore, supernatural horror, social realism, noir and romance. The baffling and entertaining Border centers  on the story of Tina an unusual-looking female border guard with a strange talent for smelling human emotions, sniffing out smugglers, pedophiles and various criminal behaviors.Tina’s world is upended when she meets a mysterious, yet suspicious man with a smell that confounds her detection. Vore becomes the man of her dreams. But through her affections for Vore, Tina is forced to face certain moral quandaries for humankind and confront disconcerting insights about herself.

Reviews

Unique, unforgettable and cathartic, Border is an oddball, but poignant, cult classic in the making. Abbasi’s sincerity wisely avoids caricature and mocking his marginalized characters and by doing so he crafts a surprisingly humanist and artful story of love for the diminished and dismissed outsiders of the world.
