Movie Info

In this wry German dark comedy, Walter (Jürgen Rißmann) is a professional hitman who has just botched a job. Forced to leave the city, he reluctantly takes up an offer from eccentric crime boss Berger (Reiner Schöne) to protect his house (and young, pretty, free-spirited wife Sybille) in a remote region of the Carpathian Mountains. At Walter's side is Mickey (Thomas Wodianka), his chatty, thrill-seeking old friend. After a freak accident, what seemed to be a nice, easy holiday job for the hapless pair soon becomes a comically nightmarish fight for survival. Stunning cinematography of the deceptively idyllic snowy landscapes and hardboiled, clever plot twists make Snowman's Land an unmissable genre classic. -- (C) Music Box Filmmore

Thomson is more successful at visual composition than narrative momentum; would-be sequences of black comedy are too stretched out to benefit from timing.

Just when it's lulled you into complacency, it springs back to life - and death.

Top Critic

Despite on-point performances, the story is too pitted with holes and loose ends to permit the film a bump from meh to marvelous.

Unfortunately, the images are more inviting than the narrative.

Tonally, Snowman's Land feels like a German throwback to a '90s indie, but without the energy-the pacing is languid to the point of aimlessness ...
