Border is based on a short story by John Ajvide Lindqvist, the author of LET THE RIGHT ONE IS (one of my all time favorite vampire movie). This is the official submission by Sweden for the Best Foreign Language film category of the 91st academy award 2019. This movie is unique, wholly original, and will keep your eyes glued to the screen from beginning to the end. Without giving anything away, Tina, the homely looking border custom guard, has an uncanny ability to smell emotions on people around her. Despite having a dog breeder as a live-in room mate, she maintain a solitary life and when she is not working, she walk bare feet exploring the dense forest behind her house. This movie has a very slow, calming rhythm to the pacing. Believe me when I declare this is no ordinary movie and it’s totally original. Go see it because you will feel all kinds of emotions but boredom will not be one of them.
