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

Any charm evaporates amid the rampant amorality.

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.

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.

The tone here is unhurried and the bursts of violence and narrative played at an aesthetic remove, but the cycles of languor and activity ultimately feel too calculated-the strained overlay of sensationalism onto a desiccated canvas.

Fun, often droll crime thriller about a grungy slob of a hit man given an assignment in the remote, snowy Carpathian Mountains provides a nifty ride for both more demanding audiences and the usual suspects looking for raunchiness.

A gloomy comedy that's funnier in theory than in practice.

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 ...

A zany Teutonic character-driven film noir that's filled with deadpan comedy.
