In tyro scribe-helmer Geraldine Bajard‘s The Edge, an attractive French doctor moves to a mysterious gated community where the spotty youngsters seem obsessed with sex, death and, before long, the newly arrived medico himself. The handsome, autumnal-looking Franco-German pic lists Teuton helmer Hans-Christian Schmid (Requiem, Storm) as one of its producers, but feels 100% Gallic in the way it grafts a lurid, muddled vision of adolescent sexuality and the emptiness of lives in the bourgeois‚ burbs onto a rites-of-passage narrative.
