Storyline

In Paris, during the riots due to the election of a conservative candidate to the presidency of France, a group of four muslim small-time criminal teenagers from the periphery; Alex, Tom, Farid, the pregnant Yasmine, and her brother Sami, plan to run away from Paris to Amsterdam with a bag full of robbed money. However, Sami is shot and the group split up, with Alex and Yasmine going to the emergency hospital with Sami while Tom and Farid head to the border with the money. Tom and Farid decide to stop in a bed and breakfast nearby the frontier, and are hosted by Gilberte and Klaudia that offer free room and sex to the newcomers. They call Alex and Yasmine who are fleeing from Paris to join them in the inn. But soon they discover that their hosts are sadistic cannibals of a Nazi family led by the deranged patriarch and former SS officer and Nazi war criminal Le Von Geisler who plans to make Yasmine the brood mare for a new Aryan master race. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Yasmine: My name is Yasmine. I'm three months pregnant. One day, someone said "Men are born free with equal rights". The world in which I live is the opposite. Who would want to be born to grow up in the chaos and the hate? I've decided to spare him the worst.

Brutal & Violent..."works for me"
3 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

What is it about European movies and psychotic families...??,well,to be honest it delivers every time you put in so much gore and violence combined with some psychotic group seeking pleasure in doing so,Frontier(s)is a new mixture of the same old formula,an effective one,The movie is brutal & violent and so a perfect one for Thriller/Slasher fans.I am always on a regular lookout for such films and somehow i always find it safe to go with some European slasher,and so along came Frontiers which is an entertaining thriller/slasher movie from France.The movie contains good 50 minutes of thrilling experience which obviously goes in its favor making it worth your time,the film at some levels is Intense & very disturbing but this makes it more interesting...great movie,loved it
