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.

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

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

Impressively handled sophomore feature by writer-helmer Thomasz Thompson isn't quite a slam dunk, but should beguile fans of twisty, offbeat genre fare.

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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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.
