Although mostly shot in Norway, great care was taken to remove any Norwegian language from the movie. No Norwegian is spoken and anything normally written in Norwegian is changed. This includes newspaper headlines and destinations on public transportation. Norwegian police cars normally have "politi" written on them (meaning "police") but this was simply removed. See more »
The different snowmen throughout the movie change between camera shots. There is no story connection to the changes being made. See more »
A PBS styled gruesome murder mystery for the big screen where the butler did it.
It's as if PBS decided to do a "Silence Of The Lambs" progressively edgy and gory styled detective story with the pace and attention to detail of a "Father Brown" murder mystery or "The Coroner".
Anyway, the production, cinematography and gorgeously orchestral and ambient musical soundtrack are the winners in "The Snowman". Never has snow looked so beautiful until you see it photographed in Norway.
To keep up with the plot you do have to pay attention to all the names of suspects, victims and time lines spoken abruptly in British accents within long contemplative pauses as if every character was avoiding breathing the cold air.
Val Kilmer is almost unrecognizable and his voice sounds dubbed which kinda' makes his character oddly more interesting where I wish he was given more screen time.
It's a decent, intelligently and beautifully produced movie perfect for curling up with some cocoa in cold winter months to find out who done it. I was just expecting more "Silence Of The Lambs" and less "Inspector Morse".
