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.

(at around 1h 00 mins) After Von Geisler uses the pliers on the back of Alex's leg, he laughs and uses the phrase "Arbeit macht frei." This phrase, loosely translated as "work makes you free," is the infamous motto that was posted at the front of Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War, and still hangs on the Auschwitz concentration camp museum entrance today.

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.

"Frontiére(s)" begins as a crime thriller when a couple of friends are running from the riots where one of their friends has been shot. He dies in the hospital and a couple of them take shelter in an isolated hostel while waiting for the others. From that point, everything takes a different turn when they find out that the place is run by a sadistic family led by a former Nazi criminal.
Okay, so it appears to be the french version of "Hills Have Eyes" and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre". But this is not just another clone. "Frontiére(s)" delivers in a big way: a great cast, an entertaining story with surprising and shocking moments and the violence is hard- hitting and extreme. Loaded with awesome special effects and brutal killings. This is precisely what it's supposed to be: a highlight in the horror genre. Don't let the french language turn you off from seeing this picture. Great horror-movies can certainly come from France, remember "High Tension" (a.k.a. Switchblade Romance)??? Enough said...
