Critic Reviews for Frontier of Dawn

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • [A] frequently tedious rumination on rabid passion that still manages to linger in the mind.

    November 17, 2011 | Rating: 3/6 | Full Review…
  • Love is a universe of two in Philippe Garrel's fatalistic romance Frontier of Dawn.

    March 6, 2009 | Rating: 4/5
  • Garrel has mastered a own very personal tone that makes even a minor work such as this feel essential and vital

    May 28, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Tedious fatalistic French melodrama.

    May 2, 2009 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Has exquisite cinematography and an initially absorbing and compelling plot which, midway, loses steam and becomes pretentious and awkward while leaving you with a bad aftertaste.

    March 9, 2009 | Rating: 5.85/10 | Full Review…
  • Coupled with Garrel's impassive approached to the material, Frontier of Dawn is a conflicted film whose striking imagery simply cannot make up for the void left by its deficient storytelling.

Audience Reviews for Frontier of Dawn

  • Nov 08, 2010
    Pretty good till the supernatural part. Maybe if Carole wasn't so scaring inside (his mind?) the mirror ... What I specially like about this movie is that the story is very recent (she dies in 2007), but we feel in 70's, without any trace of modern life. Brazilian writer Nelson Rodrigues' words describe very well the movie: "love, if not eternal, wasn't love". </br> </br>
