In an Austrian ski-resort, ruthless Dutch lady-killer Ryan is the cock of the ski-lessons roost, but only accepts advanced Dutch pupils, or he would be swamped with adoring girls; however this year his boss forces him to take beginners too, one of which is a sexually as inexperienced girl. Ryan's younger brother Erik, also gorgeous but far less assertive, gentler and a virgin, has another embarrassing failure to do it with a girl on the train from the Netherlands, ending up peeing in a bottle in girls' sleeping compartment. The good boy bunks with bad big brother, who claims sex-appeal is the key to success as a popular ski instructor. Teachers and pupils go about scheming more for the partner-chase then for winter sports, even at odds with same-sex friendships, but love finds its way... Written by
These dutch filmmakers never intended to shoot at the Oscar nominees for best foreign movie. And that shows. Snowfever is a film without any real story, inspiration or lessons. But that ain't that bad. I mean, you gotta go watch this flick when you're in the mood for a light feel-good movie. A story about a very good looking girl with nerdy habits, clothes and friends. She wanna go for prince charming and during a snowboard weekend in the Alps she learns that she must be happy with herself. She also learns that life isn't about being popular or chasing guys. It's about being yourself and being close to your real friends. During the movie she shows a guy that nice guys don't always finish last.
This movie is nice to watch when you are down, with your girlfriend or when you're a snowboard freak (very nice snow-shots and scenery). But don't expect a good storyline. Or any storyline for that matter.
