Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter | 2015 | NR | - 1.3.1

A woman (Rinko Kikuchi), tired of her mundane life, dreams of finding a treasure and follows what she thinks is a path to a real treasure laid out in the movie "Fargo." Also with Nobuyuki Katsube, Shirley Venard, David Zellner and Nathan Zellner. Directed by David Zellner. A few lines of dialogue are spoken in Japanese with no subtitles and others with English subtitles. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 1 - A woman leans toward a man who is trying to help her and attempts to kiss him; he pulls away and says that he is married with children.
 A woman watches out of her apartment window as a man and a woman in a neighboring apartment dance.
 Several women dress in a locker room (no flesh is visible).

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A woman stands on a frozen lake, pounds on the ice to retrieve something under the surface and we see her hands become a little bloody and blood stains are on the ice until she pulls out a piece of wood. A woman walks through snow at night and we see her under a mound of snow in the morning; she gets up and appears to be OK (her skin is slightly blue tinged). A dog chases a woman walking through woods, it bites the comforter that she is wearing and tugs on it as she yells at the dog until she drops a DVD and the dog runs away with it.
 We see a man in a movie a few times with a bloody wound on his face and neck (his hand is also bloody).
 A woman yells at her adult daughter over the phone in a few scenes and belittles her for not being married; she says, "You've shamed me" and the daughter cries. A woman yells at a man and tells him that a treasure is real before storming away from him.
 A woman takes a taxi a long distance, and then runs away without paying; the driver honks, but does not pursue her. A woman's credit card is declined at a motel and she leaves without paying. A woman walks in snow-covered landscape through heavy winds after getting off a bus. A woman walks along a deserted beach and into a cave where she lifts a large stone and crabs skitter around a hole in the ground under it. A woman covers herself with a comforter from a motel and walks along a highway and streets; a police officer in a cruiser blares his siren to get her attention and they talk and he tries to help her.
 A woman attempts to set her pet rabbit free; it won't leave so we see her pick it up and take it onto a train where she leaves it in a seat and cries as the train pulls out of the station.
 A woman pulls a VHS tape out of a VCR and the tape unspools; she is seen later with arms full of tape and she puts it in a toilet and flushes it. A woman spits into a cup of tea (we see spittle) that she has prepared for her boss (she does this a couple of times) and we see the man drink from the cup with no adverse reaction. A woman slurps noodles from a cup.
 A police officer talks about a "drunk guy" shooting the genitals off a statue with a 12 gauge.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
