I came across this movie trailer for Tomasz Thomson‘s Snowman’s Land on FirstShowing. although it was originally found on Twitch. The German-language hitman dark comedy does have a Coen Brothers-vibe to it, but that might just be the subgenre itself. The movie tells the story of a professional killer who takes up an offer to protect the house of a crime boss in a remote region of the Carpathian Mountains.But when the crime bosses wife is accidentally killed, the glorified vacation “becomes a fight for survival for all parties involved.” Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Official Plot Synopsis:
Hapless contract killer Walter has screwed up a hit badly, and he has to leave town FAST. Intent on keeping a very low profile, he agrees to take a job guarding Mr Berger’s (a former underworld boss) house, in a remote area of the Carpathian Mountains, with his pal Mickey. Berger’s wife Sybille turns up at the house unannounced, and shortly after, is killed in a freak accident. Fearing for their lives Walter and Mickey hide Sybille’s body, but it’s only a matter of time before Berger discovers his wife’s fate, and a fight for survival begins for all parties involved.
Snowman’s Land will be released in Germany this October. No word on an domestic release as of yet.
