Tina (Eva Melander) is a customs agent with a nose for trouble. She can literally smell human emotions, which is a handy talent for sniffing out suspicious border crossers. But when a mysterious male traveller's scent confounds her, she's faced with hugely disturbing insights about who she is and what she wants.
A strange chromasomal disorder
- Border review by PW
Vampires, zombies and aliens all produce films about alienation and the human condition. Scandinavia has it's own genre which produces either horror or comedy. This was quite unlike anything I've ever seen. Tina has a strange chromosomal disorder which also gives her extraordinary olfactory powers to sniff out guilt, shame and evil. But what is the nature of this disorder? And what happens when she meets somebody who seems to share it? Something lurking in Scandinavian folklore allows a fascinating film to develop about alienation and morality. I cannot recommend highly enough. One of the best films I've seen in a long time.
