MondaysMovies: GRÆNSE w. English Subtitles
Every Monday night we will screen a current movie for our English speaking audience. The film will either have English subtitles or the language in the movie will be English . We call it MondaysMovies - and we look forward to welcoming all of you in Vesterbros original ArtCinema.
The first MondaysMovie will be the widely acclaimed ‘GRÆNSE (BORDER)’ by director Ali Abbasi (co-written with the writer of ‘Let the Right One In’). The film will be screened with English subtitles of course.
Here is a very short synopsis of the film:
Tina is a border guard who catches more smugglers than her colleagues due to her ability to smell human emotions. When she comes across a mysterious man with a smell that confounds her detection, she is forced to confront hugely disturbing insights about herself and humankind..
And here are a few excerpts from international reviews of the film (holding a 96% approval rating on RottenTomatoes.com):
The refreshingly offbeat, sturdily handled "Border" is not just unlikely to resemble any of its subtitled competition but also anything else you'll see this year.
- Los Angeles Times
Gräns hits its peak in the scenes between Melander and Milonoff. Off-the-charts chemistry between them offers thrills, chills and the real romance of another person helping you to let rip.
- Sight and Sound
As cold as possible is a good way to see it. This is a movie that aims to startle in overt and subtextual ways; the less known before viewing, the better.
