An election win for right-wing extremists sparks riots in the slums of Paris, which prompts a group of project kids to pull a robbery under cover of chaos. On the run, they head for a motel near the Dutch border. It’s here that Frontier(s)’ urban politicising piles headlong into backwater torture, the film fading into an echo of better genre pictures – most obviously The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Seething Nazi resentment provides strained connecting tissue, but director Xavier Gens enjoys the carnage too much for any serious point to stick. Includes a skimpy Making Of.
