Editorial Reviews

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.

This indie film came out of Germany (with some foreign funding, I think, from Great Britain). I wasn’t sure I was going to like it or exactly what type of movie it was going to be! The blurb sounded as if it could even be a horror film (so I included it in my Halloween-viewing queue).
I did not know any of these actors, who I think are all German. The dialog is in German but the subtitling in English is excellently readable and true to the script (interestingly, having studied only 2 years of German, especially with the accompanying English subtitles I could understand much of the original dialog, which was fun).
The main character is a hit-man who’s getting somewhat older for the business (he looks to be early 40’s). As the film opens, he completes a job in a men’s bathroom—but after having shot the target, he hears the flushing of a toilet and suddenly realizes there was someone in a stall. The man exits, sees him with the gun, and…he feels he has no choice but to shoot him to avoid any witnesses. Unfortunately this unintended victim was a somewhat-known singer, the killings make headline news, and the police are very motivated to find the perpetrator.
His boss tells him, basically, that clients are nervous, and he has no choice but to cut him loose for a while, until the heat dies down sufficiently. He suggests a vacation. Lie on the beach in Mexico or something. Uhh—Walter (Jurgen Rissmann) doesn’t have the money to take a vacation like that. The boss thinks a moment and tells him he has a possible job out of the area that would pay well. A job in the mountains—why it's practically a vacation in itself—you just have to guard a house. You can build snowmen!

A great little film, kind of PULP FICTION meets the Germans. Two hugely dissimilar second-rate hit men become involved with even worse people and do things they should not do, almost all of it out in a mysterious white wilderness setting and huge empty resort hotel. The main play is set in some mysterious, almost non-existent winter world village whose denizens appear to be criminals, perverts, drug addicts, and all that there sorts of bad things. This is a surreal film but, yes, I'll say it: riveting. Great acting, casting, filming, production, dialogue, and all the rest. See it!

Und, actung! You vil enjoy it!

Intriguing, chilling, humorous,fabulous ! Fantastic dichotomy of ruthless killers, but with compassion and emotional charity. Men receptive to whatever comes around the corner. They deal with it on the spot without forethought or any plan. Spontaneous actions even in the face of death/survival.

One of the best movies ever made - well balanced - having something for almost everyone, without anything seeming forced or contrived.

An excellent example of modern Scandinavian crime-movie making.
Human frailty, human error, humor and action combine to tell a story of bad choices, ignorance, stupidity, naive self-indulgence and unhappy endings, in which we recognize people we know.
