Border trailer: A fairy tale with a difference
Swedish film Border (Gräns) played at this year's Cannes Film Festival and surprisingly walked away with the Un Certain Regard prize. As you'll see in the trailer it is based on a story written by Let The Right One In author John Ajvide Lindqvist and has picked up rave reviews almost everywhere it has played so far.
Director Ali Abbasi's film just opened in Sweden and also plays at this year's London Film Festival and will hopefully get a UK release at some point next year. It has also been picked as Sweden's official Foreign Film entry into next years Oscars. Check out the trailer for Border above to get a first look.
Customs officer Tina (Eva Melander) 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 (Eero Milonoff), 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.
Tickets are still available to watch Border at LFF and you can buy them on the BFI website.
