Frontière(s)

R2 UK



2007. The French presidential elections are a face-off between a conservative and an extreme right-wing candidate. The banlieues are ablaze. After a failed robbery, a gang of small-time crooks splits up and goes on the run from the police, some of them seeking refuge in a seedy hostel, deep in an industrial wasteland. Unbeknownest to the robbers, their hosts are a bunch of Neo-Nazi cannibals, who will go to any lengths to turn their fascist fantasies into reality. Our young protagonists' ordeal begins and, subjected to all kinds of mutilation and torture, they learn the true meaning of universal suffrage.

Samuel Le Bihan (BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF) co-stars in this French horror film that will appeal to fans of SAW, HOSTEL, and other ultra-violent fare.
