Description:
Suffused with outlandish humour, Border, a Nordic noir drama by Iranian director Ali Abbasi, shows that even ultimate misfits can eventually find a soulmate.

Customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It's almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone trying to smuggle something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time. 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 realises the truth about herself. Now she has to choose: keep living the lie or embrace Vore's terrifying revelations.

"Movies are unique because they are mirrors that can be a deceitfully close simulation of human life. I see humans as well-developed animals and I'm interested in the situations when our animal instincts clash with society's structure. When the thin layer of civilization we are living under starts to crack and protagonists are pushed into the extreme. Not just because the extreme is interesting. Their answer interests me. The complexity of this situation is its beauty, not its sadness." (Ali Abbasi)
