Minnesota is not one of the locations you see frequently displayed in movies, which made their home state even more attractive to the filmmaker brothers Ethan and Joel Coen.
But believe me, this is not the only thing that makes "Fargo" an original. Starting with a long establishing shot of a perfectly white landscape that seems never-ending, "Fargo" quickly expands into a ferocious movie that sometimes seems all too real. Knowing his wealthy father in law will not hesitate to pay the ransom, Jerry hires two thugs, the small-minded Carl Steve Buscemi and the tight-lipped Gaear Peter Stormare.
Gaear cold bloodedly shoots the cop and two witnesses who pass by in another car. Marge Gunderson Frances McDormandthe local police chief, investigates the case in her sharp-witted manner and soon traces back the murders to Jerry Lundegaard without knowing his specific implication in the crime.
Jerry creates a larger mess in his frenzied attempt to rectify the situation. What began as the stupid idea of a weak and desperate man swiftly turns into a bloody, chaotic swath of destruction.

The visual presentation of the movie with the sluggish ever-white snowy surroundings underscore the stylized violence, and the snow contrasts all too well with the red of blood. On the other hand "Fargo" is extremely humorous in its very own way, with the thick accent of the actors making every single sentence a matchless experience.

The adolescent experiences of the young Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan, forced indoors by frigid Minnesota winters, provides a remarkably crystalline metaphor for their later film work.
