The film that everyone has been raving about. And with reason too. This is definitely the weirdest film and arguably one of the best of the festival. The film, directed by Iranian born Swede Ali Abbasi is called BORDER because the story centres on border agent Tina (Eva Melander) who uses her ability to sense or smell human emotions to catch smugglers.
She is called an ugly bitch by someone caught by her and with reason. When she sniffs up a suspicious Vore (Eero Milonoff), love blossoms. But what the audience and Tina doesn’t knows that her life will be disrupted completely. BORDER is a mix of very, very black comedy, romance and horror. Director Abbasi knows what to focus his camera on especially the clsoe-ups, be it the sniffing nose or quivering lips to exact the perfect emotion from his audience.
There is a big twist in the plot as well as many surprises around every corner.
