Victoria Carmen Sonne,
Jong-su bumps into a girl who used to live in the same neighborhood as him, who asks him to look after her cat while on a trip to Africa. When back, she introduces Ben, a mysterious guy she met there, who confesses his secret hobby.
Tina, who has grotesque, almost animal-like physical features, has always felt self-conscious about her looks. Regardless, she has: a live-in boyfriend, Roland, a dog trainer, at her isolated house in the woods, although they have never had sex, and Tina's father, who is in the early stages of Alzheimer's, believing he is solely using her; the unconditional love and support of her father; a small group of friends; and the admiration of her bosses and coworkers in her job as a customs agent at the airport, as she is literally able to "smell" human emotions, especially guilt and fear. It is using that innate ability that she stops a seemingly straight-laced person entering the country, he who was found to be carrying a memory card containing child pornography. As such, her immediate supervisor, Agneta, places her on a small investigative unit to discover the producers of this material. Tina is surprised when she is found to be incorrect about another person going through customs, Vore, ...Written by
Aubrey Plaza, involved in no way with the film, was such a fan of it that the filmmakers offered to allow her to host a screening. She arranged this screening at a theater in Los Angeles and invited 60 people to attend. Ten minutes before it was to begin she was informed that the film had not arrived in the theater. She went into the lobby to announce this, but mid-announcement was told the film had arrived. Everyone was seated and then forty minutes went by. She asked friends Fred Armisen and Nick Kroll, who were in the audience, to go on stage and entertain everyone. Armisen pretended to be the film's director while Kroll took questions from the audience. This lasted another twenty minutes. Ultimately the theater management said the film never arrived, but offered to show the crowd the film Suspiria (2018) instead. Then, an hour into showing Suspiria, they cut the film off abruptly and began to play Border, which had finally arrived. Plaza relayed this story on Conan (2010). See more »

This movie has shown how a screenplay writer and a director could make something so unique into a movie and recruited the 1st rated make-up artist to transform a pretty actress and a handsome dude into Homo Neanderthalensis-like primitive European ancestor and put them in a modern movie. Jesus, the idea and the whole story simply amazed me, 'cause it's so weird to see a woman and a man looked so primitive with Hominoidean-like faces to exist in a modern society. The idea to make such woman with abhorrent face as a customs officer, using her unique primitive animal-like sense of smell and instinct to catch the weirdos through the customs was so ingenious, then had her meeting a male with a face exactly like hers was another ingenious idea. But the ingenuity didn't stop right there. This woman not only had a legit husband (wonder how that guy would marry a woman with such a face and called her his honey....Jesus...) , the storyline also made her fall for guy with the similar face and became a lover committing adultery to this guy.
This movie is so far the most unique movie I've ever seen. If you are getting tired of those stereotyped computerized CGI Sci-fi craps, this movie might get you revitalized as a born-again movie lover.
