Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi stars as a frustrated office worker whose imagination transcends the confines of her mundane life. Obsessed with a mysterious, battered VHS tape of a popular film she's mistaken for a documentary, Kumiko leaves Tokyo for the frozen landscape of North Dakota and finds herself on an adventure unlike anything she's seen in the movies. A strangely touching underdog fable, elevated to sonic heights by a Sundance award-winning score, you will cheer for Kumiko and her quest for buried treasure.
A haunting, fantasy adventure for the ages in one of this century's most breathtaking independent films. - Associated Press
