Prepare for a love story like no other with this audacious Scandinavian fantasy, winner of Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2018.

Customs officer Tina is known for her extraordinary sense of smell. It's almost as if she can sniff out the guilt on anyone hiding something. But when Vore, a suspicious-looking man, walks past her, her abilities are challenged for the first time ever. Tina can sense Vore is hiding something she can't identify.

As Tina and Vore’s relationship develops, she finds out more about who she really is and is forced to make a potentially life-changing decision.

Critics

“It... gnaws at the brain for its subliminal messages about how we treat the people in our midst who don't fit whatever definition of "normal" we're carrying around with us.”
