Border (Gräns)

94% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
“Destined to be a cult classic, this absorbing second feature from Iran-born, Denmark-based director Ali Abbasi is based on a short story by “Let the Right One In” author John Ajvide Lindqvist” – Alissa Simon, Variety

Customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It’s almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something.

But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever.

Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can’t identify. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about herself.

Tina, like Vore, does not belong to this world. Her entire existence has been one big lie and now she has to choose: keep living the lie or embrace Vore’s terrifying revelations.

"Border succeeds as gripping drama, mostly on the strength of its two lead performances, both doing sterling work under heavy silicon masks that required four hours of make-up to apply."

Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

"This supernatural romantic thriller constantly shifts genres, but its slow burn approach keeps things intriguing. Abbasi establishes and maintains an unusual, internal logic that will satisfy viewers who go along with every strange twist."

Gary M. Kramer, Salon.com

"It is mesmerising in its initial oddness and develops into a complex, richly satisfying piece of storytelling in which all the seemingly jagged, awkward edges eventually fit smoothly together."

Allan Hunter, Screen International
