Kumiko, the treasure hunter

Streaming video - 2014

In this darkly comedic odyssey, Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, Pacific Rim) stars as Kumiko, a frustrated office worker whose imagination transcends the confines of her mundane life. Kumiko becomes obsessed with a mysterious, battered VHS tape of Fargo - which she has mistaken for a documentary - fixating on a scene where a suitcase of stolen cash is buried in the desolate, frozen landscape of North Dakota. Believing this treasure to be real, she leaves behind Tokyo and her beloved ...rabbit Bunzo to recover it - and finds herself on a dangerous adventure unlike anything she's seen in the movies.
