Sweden's entry into the Academy Awards, Oscar-nominated for Best Make-up and Hair, and winner of this year's Un Certain Regard award for innovative and non-traditional filmmaking is an intriguing, gripping and unforgettable drama, the second film from Swedish/Iranian director Ali Abbasi. Based on a short story with roots in Nordic folklore by John Ajvide Lindqvist, this refreshingly unconventional story follows a customs official at a port station who has an extraordinary sense of smell that seems to be able to detect guilt. When a suspicious looking man comes thru her station, she can tell he is hiding something, but what? They form a special bond but in doing so she discovers something terrifying about herself.
