Synopsis

Discovering your true self is fraught with untold difficulties in „Border”. Ali Abbasi’s second feature, following 2016’s „Shelley”, is a bracingly original fusion of twisted fairytale, folklore, police procedural, tragic romance and existential drama. One of the things that truly impresses about „Border” is the way Abbasi successfully juggles so many disparate plot elements and then brings them together like a well-tuned orchestra. Lead character Tina’s (an extraordinary central performance from Eva Melander) voyage of discovery unfolds alongside an investigation into a paedophile ring, troubles with her aged father and her growing attraction to Vore.
