Set in late 1800’s right before winter begins. The dialogue, incredible photography and soundtrack keeps your in your seat. You feel what how brutal life must have been for people living in the Alps in the winter during that time period. The original movie was filmed with the German language and is dubbed. The dubbing is professional and realistic, not the poor translation and awkward voices you hear in many dubbed movies.
The movie begins with a lone cowboy riding into a very unfriendly small town in the Alps. He rents a room in the only boarding house available and declares he wants to stay all winter long. No one knows why. It is not to long until you get a hint as to what his purpose is. The story slowly builds and keeps your interest to the very end.
Winner of 24 movie awards in Austria and Germany, this is really a “must see movie”.
