Inspired by an urban legend that was itself inspired by the Coen brothers jest that their black comedy classic Fargo was based on a true story, another team of filmmaking brothers, David and Nathan Zellner, have crafted a quixotic adventure story as beguiling as it is wondrously strange. Oscar-nominated Kikuchi Rinko (Babel, Norwegian Wood) stars as the misfit Kumiko. A shy Tokyo office worker, she is demeaned by her bullying boss and perky younger co-workers while being constantly nagged by her busybody mother. Seeking an escape, she becomes fixated on a worn videotape of Fargo and is convinced that the suitcase full of ransom money buried in the snow by Steve Buscemis hapless kidnapper is real and waiting to be rediscovered.
