Carole, a celebrity neglected by her husband, falls for François, a young photographer. Returning from a business trip the husband surprises them, and the lovers have to put an end to their relationship. Carole gradually drifts into madness and commits suicide. One year later, a few hours before his wedding, François has a vision: It is Carole, calling him from the other world.

While I was writing it, the film was called Heaven of the Angels, an expression I found in «Blanche ou l'oubli» by Louis Aragon. I liked it a lot, but I was put off by the neo-Catholic side. And one night, at four in the morning, I came up with La Frontière de l'Aube, which evoked both the suicide and the ghost themes. I made the film with this title in mind, and it gave me the key to each scene. (Philippe Garrel)
