Jerry, a small-town Minnesota car salesman is bursting at the seams with debt... but he's got a plan. He's going to hire two thugs to kidnap his wife in a scheme to collect a hefty ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. It's going to be a snap and nobody's going to get hurt... until people start dying. Enter Police Chief Marge, a coffee-drinking, parka-wearing - and extremely pregnant - investigator who'll stop at nothing to get her man. And if you think her small-time investigative skills will give the crooks a run for their ransom... you betcha!

Zuallererst ist Fargo ein bizarres Stück über Amerika, ein fremdartiger Heimatfilm der Coens, die selbst aus Minnesota stammen. Ihr Heimatland erscheint als exotischer Ort, wo die Leute schrullig aussehen und seltsam reden. Eine schöne, seltsame Herzlichkeit durchzieht die Erzählung. Deshalb ist der knallharte Thriller mit den komischen Elementen nicht nur ein herrlich schräges, wunderliches Werk, sondern ganz einfach ein wunderbarer Film.

Hans Schifferle

In ihrem Drehbuch haben die Coen-Brüder Realität zu einer menschlichen Komödie hochgehoben. Es sind die Filme wie Fargo, die mich das Kino lieben lassen.

Roger Ebert
