KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER 
A young unbalanced woman from Tokyo travels to North Dakota in hopes of finding the suitcase full of money Steve Buscemi buried in the film Fargo.
It's a beautiful and bizarre film that is funny as it is sad, while managing to be as easily accessible as it is unique. Rinko Kikuchi does a splendid job at portraying Kumiko with a fragile determination that roars most when she's silently gesturing. It's bleak yet alluring photography, bizarre score and gaggle of oddball supporting characters make it a wonderfully mystifying journey into a familiar yet foreign world.
