Ali Abbasi, 2018, Sweden, 101’, HD, VO with Spanish subtitles
Tina is a customs officer working at the Finnish border with an incredible ability to smell guilt on anyone trying to bring anything illegal across the border. Her odd physical appearance provokes rejection and causes her to be socially isolated. However, when she has to examine Vore, a person who looks a lot like her, her detection skills are deactivated, even though Tina knows that he is hiding something. Somewhere between fantasy and existential melodrama, Ali Abbasi’s second movie won the Un Certain Regard award at the prestigious Cannes film festival in 2018 and won international critical acclaim for its ability to reformulate the premises of film genres to surprise the audience.
