Based on a short story the author of Let the Right One In, this is a strange and startling Swedish romance like no other.
Based on a short story by the author of Let the Right One In, this is a love story like no other. Tina is a customs agent with a unique sense of smell, which gives her an uncanny ability to seek out contraband. Due to her appearance, she leads an introverted and friendless life – that is, until she develops a special bond with a similarly strange traveller. As she discovers his true identity, she also realises the truth about herself. A startling movie that mixes romance, Nordic noir, social realism and supernatural horror.
(2018 Sweden / Denmark 110 mins Subtitled)
Abbasi frames each visual revelation using absurd humour. Having spent good time establishing Tina’s lonely life, each expansion into fantasy works as a metaphor for the deepening of her existence … Gräns (Border) hits its peak in the scenes between Melander and Milonoff. Off-the-charts chemistry between them offers thrills, chills and the real romance of another person helping you to let rip. Sophie Monks Kaufman, Sight & Sound
