Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter

104 mins
6.8 / 10 (1075)


A lonely Japanese woman becomes convinced that a satchel of money buried in a fictional film is, in fact, real. Abandoning her structured life in Tokyo for the frozen Minnesota wilderness, she embarks on an impulsive quest to search for her lost mythical fortune.

MUBI's take

A beguiling drama from the Zellner brothers, this re-telling of an urban legend follows one woman’s fantasy of escape. Led by a dazzling Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim), Kumiko is a tale of cinematic obsession that forges an intertextual relationship with the Coen Brothers’s extraordinary_Fargo_.
