Houston Film Critics Society, HFCS, nominated the Swedish film Border (Swedish: Gräns) as one of five movies to the Best Foreign Language Film of 2018.


Honorary Consul General Astrid Marklund attended the Houston Film Critics award show representing the Swedish film Border that was nominated.

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. Even worse, she feels a strange attraction to him. As Tina develops a special bond with Vore and discovers his true identity, she also realizes the truth about herself.

The other nominated foreign movies:

Burning from South Korea.

Cold War from Poland.

Roma from Mexico. (Winner of the award.)

Shoplifters from Japan.
