The film really had potential. But it was among the worst I've seen. I was looking for a message when the act died out. But it never came.Great actors and makeup. That's it..

I'm so disappointedReviewed byviktor-wesslenVote: 3/10
This is undoubtedly one of the strangest films I've ever seen, and although I cannot fault Border for being an original and striking piece, I can't say that it's the most enthralling film ever made either. Despite a unique and quirky premise, the film doesn't quite have the same depth in its originality, while some of its more disturbingly weird moments come across as a little too unpleasant, failing to wrap you up in the sense of bizarre wonder that could have made it a little more special.
So, the story revolves around a woman who works as a border agent, and her life as she experiences differences with those around her, as well as developing a bond with a more similar man. With a lot of prosthetic make-up, Eva Melander and Eero Milonoff are transformed into rather brutish-looking people, but through their strange, almost animal-like behaviour throughout, they begin to feel closer and closer.
That's the part of the movie that works well - the sheer bewilderment you feel at watching two people act in the least human manner possible, and the intrigue that that breeds as you attempt to figure what on earth they really are, and why they act in such a strange way. It's a unique idea that the film pushes forward with confidence and persistence, and it definitely makes Border a striking watch throughout.
However, while it's an interesting and equally confusing film from the start, Border hits a little bit of a roadblock about halfway through, as it runs out of surprises to keep you enticed and weirded-out to the same extent as its opening act.
Moving at an incredibly slow pace, the film resists giving you too much information about the true nature of these two characters, but after a while, it just becomes a point of frustration rather than intrigue. And then when you do get somewhat more of a reveal, the film is then completely out of ideas and mystery for the remainder of its runtime, failing to engross you with any sense of wonderment in a final act that's a lot more unpleasant than it is mystical.
And that's my other big problem with Border: it's just a bit too weird. At its heart, the film tells a story about accepting and understanding who you truly are, but that central theme really pales in comparison to the stranger surface of the movie. However, in an attempt to keep surprising and intriguing you, the film goes all out with some of the most bizarre elements of drama and even fantasy, to the point where it actually becomes a little disturbing, and extremely uncomfortable.
Overall, then, I found Border an intriguing and immensely bewildering film. Starting strongly with a vague yet original premise, the film does unfortunately fall apart due to a lack of real depth, a painfully slow pace, and a disturbing desire to show the weirdest things it can possibly think of. It's a unique film that did grab me, but it's definitely not for everyone.
I wasnt seeing it as a film about differences. It does well to show how blended all worlds of many different species is coevolved and of the same fabric; nature embodied itself in this unique and uniquely identifiable person. She or he or the one is portrayed well as being in conflict of being anthropomorpized! Funny thing is we so want to see this as a human experience but it portrays in this characters world that nature has no identity but is a birthplace for many identitites. Guilt, shame, and fear are felt throughout the animal kingdom but so are love, lust, desire, joy, and calm. I think there is more going on in this film than others alluded to. And if it is just me that saw these things maybe I like the idea of forest bathing and kindred nature enough to have commented that it is at least where the film could go. Enjoy your movie watching everyone! BTW - Some people think it is a movie about about ugly people, or about differeing cultures, tribalism, propaganda for "liberal-democracy", or allowing violence in our nations. Some things are a matter of life and death but many things are not, open your mind to possibilities that lay just out of sight. Sometimes metaphor and fantasy are just that. And just like fairy tales they sometimes have a meaningful message that is particularly human, not just for this one group of people or the other but a message that resonates and speaks for us as a mankind. No I am not a liberal or any party I am just looking for the next best thing like everyone eventually needs to admit to. I sound a bit like that liberal tv show Star-Trek. Hehe. Thank you for this unique film. Peace-out.
