2018 Ali Abbasi 101m Sweden/ subtitled Drama
This genre bending film based on Nordic folklore may be on it’s way to a cult classic. At first it appears to be about a rather strange looking woman with a unique talent in smelling fear, who has a suitable job as a customs inspector at a Swedish ferry port. One day she meets a man who looks surprisingly like her. The film quickly veers into something wildly unexpected. The lead actress won Cannes Un Certain Regard award. Defying convention, it is unforgettable and will reward the adventurous film-goer. Definitely not family viewing.
