Directed by David Zellner | 2014

With Rinko Kikuchi, Nobuyuki Katsube, David Zellner, Nathan Zellner, Shirley Venard

"It’s a marvelous role for Kikuchi, who has the intensity of the great silent film stars... At every turn, we can sense what’s going on behind Kumiko’s doleful, downcast eyes; Kikuchi pulls us deeply into her world."
—Variety

In this absurdist adventure tale based on an urban legend, a Tokyo office assistant (Oscar nominee Rinko Kikuchi) becomes irrationally fixated on a scene in the Coen Brothers’ Fargo in which a briefcase full of money is hidden beneath a blanket of snow. With stolen atlas in hand, she ditches her overbearing mother and dead-end job, taking off for the Midwest plains in search of the buried treasure. Indie veterans David and Nathan Zellner journey to the edges of film-fueled obsession in this beguilingly off-kilter character study infused with deadpan humor and rapturous widescreen imagery.
