The tune that Von Geisler is heard whistling is "Lili Marlene," a popular song in World War II Germany. See more »
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 »
If you see the name Frontiere(s) just drive don't stop!!!!
Total chaos in Paris after political election.Some young thieves flee from the town and will meet up at a hostel near the border to Luxemburg.What they don't now is that the owner is an old Nazi-general that could have been Hitlers best friend during world-war11.Also his other family members live there and they all total sickos who like the taste of blood.I build up big expectations for this film as I read a lot of positive reviews on internet and all pictures I seen looked great.Did I like it,well its a good solid horror film thats really the director Xavier Gens pot a lot of energy on.Its bloody and has a lot of violence,but to be honest I expected more on that department.On the + side it has a lot of tension and atmosphere.Actors do good performance and the film gets never boring.Can not say its original as I felt echoes from both Texas Chainsaw Massacre&Hostel but that doesn't matter.Frontiere(s) has a lot of potential but no masterpiece.But don't get me wrong the movie is good enough to be recommended.Often compared to another French classic Haute Tension and I must say I prefer Frontiere(s).Out in Sweden on DVD in June and its a must to my horror-collection.Recommended,I give it 7/10
