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.
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 tonal hodgepodge ever at odds with itself, Tomasz Thomson's unctuous, tongue-in-cheek debut is far too self-satisfied with its jokes for any to really be funny.
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.
A zany Teutonic character-driven film noir that's filled with deadpan comedy.
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.
Impressively handled sophomore feature by writer-helmer Thomasz Thompson isn't quite a slam dunk, but should beguile fans of twisty, offbeat genre fare.
This is a competently made film with some good moments, visually, and some funny scenes. The problems come in with the narrative. The narrative is absolutely nonexistent. The movie just throws out this character that is fed up with being a hitman and seeks a change of profession and scenery. That's it, this is set up in the beginning of the film. The rest of it is absolutely nothing. There's no real motivation to keep watching since the movie is going nowhere at all. Like any film, it has its moments and it's not bad at all, it's simply dull due to its non-story. That's all I have to say, if there had been an effort to make the story interesting it could've been considerably better. Still an average film and some people will enjoy it more than I did.
