The Screener Squad has embarked on another international mission to review this Cannes Un Certain Regard-winning film. Adapted from a short story by John Ajvide Lindqvist (Let the Right One In), we follow a deformed woman who works for the Swedish customs office who meets a man with not only similar deformities but some of the other heightened senses she has developed through it. The connection she builds with him will not only get her involved in an intense police investigation but will also present her with revelations that will question her entire existence.
Justin could only moderate this review due to other obligations, but Brad and newcomer London took the lead in reviewing this acclaimed foreign film. Is this truly good enough to earn its place as Sweden’s Oscar candidate for Best Foreign Language film? Or will voters be too grossed out and terrified by its reveals? There will certainly be no end of ‘border’ puns while you listen to the review to find out!
