(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.

After Yasmine escapes from the house and takes the elevator down into the shafts below, she leaves the outer elevator gate open, which is seen as the elevator is recalled to the surface by Karl. Later, after she kills Goetz on the table saw, Karl exits the elevator into the shaft, having to open the outer gate again, which is now closed. See more »
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.

The German versions had to be cut to be released at all. The rental version was cut by ca. 3 minutes to secure a light SPIO/JK approval, whereas the retail version was cut by ca. 7 minutes for a "Not under 18" FSK rating. See more »
Frontier(s) is a fast-paced, very violent thrill-ride from Xavier Gens. While it won't be everyone's taste, for fans of full-on gruesome action it's a must. It's basically a very decent version of 'Hostel' with a couple of thugs on the run from riot-torn Paris who seek refuge at a seedy hotel, unbeknownst what lies ahead. It's not a great film by any means but it is a thrilling one. The lead actress did a great job, but there's also good stuff the actor who played Farid and the actor who played the meathead lunatic. Its style is slick, just what I enjoy watching. Fans of the genre will know what to expect, others may not. But I recommend 'Frontier(s) for a mind-f*ck of a night. ***/*****
