From the Director of "Hitman" (2007) comes this extremely violent French horror film continues the bloody tradition of French cinema which began since the dawn of the nineties. In "Frontière (s) ' we are witnessing a bottomless Lake of blood with many and varied scenes of murder and chilling injuries raise the hair. Indeed the film Xavier Gens gives no chestnuts and requires a strong stomach to monitor entire.
The case of the "Frontière (s)" offers nothing refreshing or innovative in the scene of horror. A group of young protesters escape from Paris which boils due to vehement protests and clashes with insurgent forces. The sociopolitical crisis plunging the city into a State of chaos and uncertainty, many stochopoiwntas ' troublemakers '. The inhospitable this situation motivates rebellious protagonists on a road trip out of town to the border with the Netherlands. But their journey will evolve into a nightmare when they decide to stay for a night in a provincial decadent Motel run by a paranoid family neo-Nazis. Members of the Nazi family quickly demonstrate their moods malicious beating, imprisoning, torturing and slaughtering the unfortunate young people who will give a desperate struggle for survival to the finish. Certainly nobody would want to is in place …
As we understand the "Frontière (s) ' moves in familiar splatter movie trails/torture porn direction such as" Hostel "(2005) but also of families such as the paranoid" Wrong Turn "(2003) and the timeless diamond Tobe Hooper horror" Texas Chain Saw Massacre "(1974). The only original element that inserts are the Nazi ideology of the family – a clever trick to intensify the feeling of horror and indignation of the Viewer. After the introductory scenes of the new flight from Paris and arriving at the Motel of neo-Nazis, the film offers us endless amounts of gore through various scenes of violent injuries and killings. Ropalies, shootings, stabbings, gantzwmata, up and kills with gas in gas chamber (a treasured tactic of historical Nazis) served with exquisite detail causing shock to the more faint-hearted and happiness to splatter everywhere-groups.
The "Frontière (s) was banned in Thailand because of excessive violence.
At the same time, the movie tries to shock and with references to the Nazi mentality of the family, highlighting the authoritarian structure, German sayings, the attachment to the father-leader, (in a parallel to the last commitment of the German people to Hitler), faith in the purity of the breed, the "Immaculate" perpetuation and aversions to different or what is "color" or religion. Of course the Nazi's imaging semiotics is not done in the most efficient manner, though in no way seemed to me that the purpose of the Gens was to ypertonisei the ideological elements at the expense of action and violence. Just the whole concept needed better editing to tie seamlessly with the rest of the material. Interpretations in "Frontière (s)" is generally sufficient something which cannot be said and on the development of the characters. Hardly identified with someone while the more experienced eye finds similarities of a eytrafoys of a late family member with Leatherface from the «Schizophrenic Killer with the saw "no – God forbid – to allow comparison.
However, saying "the very the Kyrie eleison the bored and the priest», confirmed in this case, regarding the gory stuff. From a point on tire and the persistence of Gens in constant depiction of violence loses orientation. Surely the Gens had to finish his work faster not to extend content with anoysioys, labyrinth of blood and action maneuvers such as going to the finale. The "Frontière (s)" looks like IE "bloated" by violence and although we were impressed by the realistic special effects, an inner voice asking for insistently finish (whatever that is). Well that came because the momentum that had gotten …
