Rinko Kikuchi's 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter' New Trailer & Poster
"You take me to treasure?" The power of movies is on full display in the Sundance selected Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter. Based on a true story, the film follows Rinko Kikuchi as a woman who discovers a VHS copy of Fargo and actually believes there's a briefcase of money still to be discovered buried in the snow in North Dakota. And so begins a beautiful journey from Japan to the United States. A new trailer and poster have just arrived, both showing off plenty of acclaim for this gorgeous little indie. There's even a pull quote from Werner Herzog calling the film "beautiful." This looks like one you'll want to seek out. Watch!
Here's the latest trailer for David Zellner's Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter from IMDb:
You can still watch the first trailer for Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter right here.
Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter is directed by David Zellner (Kid Thing, Goliath), who co-wrote the script with his brother Nathan Zellner (both appear in the film). Kumiko (Kikuchi) lives in a cluttered, cramped apartment in Tokyo with her pet rabbit, Bunzo. She works as an office lady, robotically preparing tea and fetching dry cleaning for her nitpicking boss. But on her own time, she obsessively watches a well-known American film on a weathered VHS tape. Rewinding and fast-forwarding repeatedly, she meticulously maps out where a briefcase of loot is buried. Convinced that her destiny depends on finding the money, Kumiko heads to the US to track it down. Amplify releases the film in NY on March 18th and LA on March 20th.
This looks tops! Almost like an anime made real, with the fantasy parts at least. Love her coat too.
