You’ve never seen anything quite like Border. This audacious, unforgettable Scandinavian fantasy boasts big laughs, thrills and a highly accomplished treatment of gender ‘borders’, beauty and sexuality. Based on a novel by the writer of Let the Right One In, it’s a uniquely memorable tale of morality and identification designed to provoke viewers with the push-pull of desire and disgust while gluing your eyes to the big screen. Tina (Eva Melander) is a customs officer with a nose for contraband and unusual facial features that she thinks are unique. That is, until the equally striking Vore (Eero Milonoff) comes into her life.

What the Critics are Saying:

“exciting, intelligent mix of romance, Nordic noir, social realism and supernatural horror that defies and subverts genre conventions” Alissa Simon, Variety

“wonder of a film that’s fantastic in every way” Uproxx

“lives on the edge of several genres while exploring new territories within the realms of love, beauty, and morality to convey what truly sets one apart from being a man or a monster” Slashfilm
