Surprisingly fresh crime story
dsi2 from Germany
15 April 2005
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 !
