Available now on Blu-ray is Adolfo J. Kolmerer & William James incredibly odd German revenge fairytale, “Snowflake”. Set in the near-future, the story follows two serial killers, Tan (Erkan Acar) and Javid (Reza Brojerdi) who come across a screenplay that just so happens to contain everything they are about to do. Even the dentist who wrote it has no idea about the power his words have until Tan and Javid pay him a visit. In the meantime, a young woman named Eliana (Xenia Assenza) and her friend, Carson (David Masterson) are looking to hire a group of contract killers to take down Tan and Javid for killing her parents.
The film’s title refers to an angelic character in the story, but we don’t learn about her until the near midway point. What make’s “Snowflake” so interesting is the writing by Arend Remmers. From the opening scene, he draws you in witch the two killers having a simple argument about sandwiches. There is definitely, some Tarantino influence in the writing. There is also a hint of “Smokin’ Aces” and “Seven Psychopaths”, yet with less glossiness. “Snowflake” does drag-on for a bit longer than it should but there is enough originality here to keep things interesting.
