A father and his two teenage sons travel to a small mountain cabin for a male-bonding adventure. When a mysterious stranger arrives at the cabin, their outing turns into a struggle for survival.
User Reviews: A dangerous smuggler terrorizing a snowbound family in the mountains… This is less family-oriented as, say, Avalanche 1994, in fact this is quite brutal sometimes — and needless to say, all the old actors in this, who play Lech, Mateusz and Konrad, are infinitely better than David Hasselhoff. But basically this is an age-old story with very few surprises. The older son being gay is the only motif usually not found in such films. And they use this idea efficiently, showing that in face of a very "masculine" challenge he has to fight the low expectations of his father and brother as well.

Mostly good rhythm and excellent cinematography, but the score is simply too much, with howls, shrieks and all it would be more suitable for a horror with lots of scares. Paired with this story (which flows quietly most of the time) this agitated music raises expectations the pictures can not live up to.
