Director's Comments

This is my entry for the german contest "Steinerei".
The storyline is not realy mine, the original story is called "Diary of a Snowshoveler" or even "I love Snow". If you don´t know the story you can read the original story here:

So, I had the idea to "Bruce Willis" as principal character. So I got an german comedian "Thilo Seibel", who can perfectly speak like the german voice of "Bruce Willis". (German movies are translated with other voices).
After this deal was perfect I re-wrote the original story to the "Bruce Willis -language". Just like yipi-yaye, motherxxxxxx.
So, most of the "language-fun" you will not understand, but the storyline is not that hard.

Anyway, its a funny little movuie, just watch on my page:
or on brick-cinema:

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
Though the dialogue will be lost on non-German speaking viewers, you don't need to understand a word in order to enjoy this film. The diary of a resident newly moved to a particularly snowy region, this film does a great job of expressing the man's changing feelings towards the powdery white stuff using great props, solid snow effects, and an effective use of interchanging heads. I'd suggest reading the English translation of the story (linked to above) to get the full effect, but it's not needed to enjoy this piece.
