A jaded Japanese woman discovers a hidden copy of the movie Fargo on VHS, believing it to be a treasure map indicating the location of a large case of money. USA, 2014. 104 minutes.
A 10 time award winner, this is the third feature film from brothers David and Nathan Zellner (Goliath, Kid-Thing).
“From the world of Fargo an urban legend was born of a Japanese woman who arrived in Minnesota in 2001 to find the money stashed by Steve Buscemi’s character. While the truth of the woman’s intentions in Minnesota have come to light, it hasn’t stopped the Fargo related anecdote from spreading and inspiring the nihilistic but wonderful Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter.” Cameron Williams, The Popcorn Junkie
“[T]his is a compelling, distinctive piece of cinema with a startling central performance and highly recommended viewing.” – David O’Connell, 20/20 Filmsight
