Walter is a professional killer and has messed up a job. He has to leave the city and takes up an offer of crime boss Berger to protect Berger's house in a remote region of the Carpathian Mountains. At his side: old friend Mickey. By accident Berger's young wife Sybille is killed and Walter and Mickey hide her body because they fear Berger's vengeance. What seemed to be a nice holiday trip with little work for Walter and Mickey soon becomes a fight for survival for all parties involved. Written by
If you're into advertising and look for a cinematographer who can manage to deliver some decent, slick images for a reasonably price you can give "Snowman's Land" a quick look. As a show reel.
Otherwise you are well advised to stay away from it. This is the typical "hey, i know a great location, let's just go there and shoot a crazy movie"- kind-of-picture. Yes, the location, an isolated hotel-like complex in the middle of nowhere, is quite impressive. Unfortunately the people behind this are so in love with it, that they choose to make it the real star of the movie! This can be a great idea if you are Stanley Kubrick or Robert Wise. In this case this decision makes this picture about two totally implausible hit men without a hit a painful lesson in how-to-bore-the-audience-to-death. It's full of brainless dialogs, too. 2 stars for the location. Enough said.
