In this wry German dark comedy, Walter (Juergen 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 Schoene) 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.
