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 who meets a mysterious man whom she is soon attracted to.
