a compelling look from a different point of view
22 July 2007 | by mcguirk193See all my reviews

I happened upon the second half of "Frontieres" playing on TV and couldn't turn away. While the film clearly takes the part of advocate for the Africans trying desperately to reach Europe and their dreams of a better life, it doesn't preach, or sentimentalize their experience. The daily struggles and occasional joys of these characters are easily recognizable, humanizing people who are too often described in terms of statistics.

I definitely will be hunting down this film to see it from the beginning, but even from a partial viewing, I think it speaks strongly from a point of view that tends to get overlooked, at least here in the 'developed world'.
