The Snowman, (2017) directed by Tomas Alfredson, is an interesting crime thriller. It follows Michael Fassbender as Harry Hole and Rebecca Ferguson as Katrine Bratt in their attempt to catch a cryptic serial killer, who leaves snowman as taunts to the investors.
The film feels like a classic whodunit that builds suspense in a story where anybody could be the killer and the twists are plentiful.
The film does a good job of making one slowly become more and more interested in the murders. As each revelation about the characters’ history and true motivations come to light, it only makes us want more and more for the budding duo of Harry and Katrine to catch the killer.
So, while watching the film, you can really lose yourself in the characters and begin to empathise with their flaws. The film cuts between several timelines, which slowly create a disturbing picture of the killer, his ever-increasing list of victims, and the other characters as well.
It is a slow burn film but there is plenty of action, gore and drama once it gets started. The ending is definitely unexpected.
The film is on wide release both in Strer Kinekor and by Metro Cinemas in Nouveau Rosebank Mall and Cresta Shopping Centre.
