Gräns (Border)

Ali Abbasi

It´s hard to say what Border is exactly. Mystery, romance, crime? It must be something in between. The film convinces through its fascinating make-up: the authenticity of its appearance rules out the possibility of following the characters on-screen without feeling a certain sense of discomfort from time to time.

Tina has a kind of seventh sense. Her ability to perceive other people´s emotional states through smells makes her work at the customs authority highly effective. When she meets Vore, she feels attached to another person for the first time. The fact that she has found someone who is similar to her and who shares the same fate, seems to comfort her. With Vore she will experience several unusual things und make mysterious discoveries about herself, which will exceed her mental horizon and confuse her world of emotions.
