Surprisingly fresh crime story
15 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Singer/actor Marius Mueller-Westernhagen reached the peak of his popularity after "Theo gegen den Rest der Welt" (1980). In 'Snowman' he recreates the can't-hold-that-loser-down-type in the best possible way. In a series of mishaps, Dorn, who only wants to peddle 3D-porn mags to Arabia, gets in possession of a serious amount of cocaine. Dorn is hunted by several gangster factions, among them some delilghtly freaky personnel. A good pal and a mysterious woman round the story up. The treatment of this formula is just slightly over the top, and the more entertaining. From a book by Joerg Fauser, the film is described as a 'free adaptation', but it keeps the books' tone. Recommended !
