One Week Only!

From the writer of “Let the Right One In” (John Ajvide Lindqvist), Border is about a customs officer named Tina, who 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, 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.

    – Leonard Maltin, LEONARDMALTIN.COM
  • “Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes ‘Border.’”

    – Katie Rife, AV CLUB

  • “Melander’s performance is remarkable. Director and co-writer Ali Abbasi brilliantly conjures an unlikely eroticism…”
