Snowman’s Land

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 Micky (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.

Reactions, Awards & Festivals

"A Teutonic mix of Tarantino and Jarmusch, 'Snowman's Land' provides considerable diversion with its deadpan take on befuddled urban hitmen assigned to a far-flung winter wonderland. Impressively handled sophomore feature by writer-helmer Tomasz Thomson"
