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.

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.

If you see the name Frontiere(s) just drive don't stop!!!!
10 May 2008 | by gialliSee all my reviews

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
