Watch Kumiko the Treasure Hunter - Alternative Versions.
"Kumiko The Treasure Hunter" (2014 release; 104 min.) brings the story
of Kumiko. As the movie opens, we see Kumiko walking alongside the
beach with a map, eventually retrieving a VHS tape from under a rock.
It turns out to be the movie "Fargo", and Kumiko becomes obsessed with
it, and in particular the character played Steve Buscemi , who buries a
briefcase full of money in the Fargo snow. Meanwhile, we witness Kumiko
becoming more and more aloof and isolated in her day-to-day life,
including her job as an Office Lady in corporate Japan. It's only when
she is watching "Fargo" that she feels alive. Kumiko eventually decides
to go to Fargo. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience,
you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
Several comments: the movie is directed, co-written by and stars David
Zellner (his brother Nathan co-wrote the script). The story is a
fantastical concoction that is loosely based on true events, and when I
say "loosely", you should read that in the broadest possible meaning.
The movie's initial 45 minutes play out in Tokyo, and Zellner captures
the loneliness and isolation of the Kumiko character, still an Office
Lady at age 29, perfectly. When Kumiko is caught trying to steal a huge
world atlas from the library and is asked why, Kumiko passionately
explains that "I am like a Spanish Conquistador, retrieving untold
treasures!", to the shock of the library guard. The last hour of the
movie plays out in the US, and captures the mood of the 'frozen tundra'
and also the mood of the "Fargo" movie perfectly. When Kumiko is
wondering the snowy fields, the movie becomes the anti-"Wild" movie:
rather than finding herself, Kumiko becomes more and more lost. Please
note that, like in "Wild", there are long stretches in this film where
not a word is spoken. Knowing some of the background on the real life
events on which this is loosely based, I was quite surprised with the
ending offered by this movie
Last but not least, there is a great
instrumental soundtrack, composed and performed by Austin-based indie
band The Octopus Project.
I head read about this movie, and was intrigued by it. Imagine my
surprise when "Kumiko The Treasure Hunter" opened without any
pre-release fanfare or advertising at my local art-house theater here
in Cincinnati this weekend. I went to see it right away and the Sunday
matinée screening where I saw this at was attended okay but not great.
Which is a shame, as this is a very nice 'little' movie that is quirky
and off-center, yet always entertaining if not intriguing. IF that
sounds like it might appeal to you, you cannot go wrong with this.
"Kumiko The Treasure Hunter" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
