To begin with, one should emphasize how great the cinematography was in this movie. Filled with the beautiful imagery of the Alps and an isolated town covered in snow along with the unique Western-Alp type of harsh reality, it truly amazes and captivates the viewer by the heart. The plot was smooth and gripping. Sam Riley, with all his western-style cowboy boots and spurs, was absolutely great in the movie, and he did his best at delivering a very solid performance of a very 'cool' stranger. For me he was a bit too cool, his character could surely be more interactive and talkative but nevertheless it was indubitably more than satisfying. He says that not talking to much, owing to the fact that his German is not that perfect, adds to the coolness of his Eastwood type of cowboy. I should say that some of the songs that are chosen for certain parts of the movie made movie look a bit strange for an Western-Alp flick, if such genre exists. Overall it was beautiful and thus definitely worth watching. If you are looking for something unique, just see this movie, you won't be disappointed.
