KUMIKO, THE TREASURE HUNTER

Written by David Zellner, Nathan Zellner + Directed by David Zellner

Starring: Rinko Kikuchi

This movie is based on the urban legend of a Japanese lady believing the story of the movie “FARGO” to be true events, in which there is a suitcase full of money buried in the middle of Minneapolis.

It follows Kumiko in her boring AF life in Japan, where she works an office job she hates, has to deal with her mum and boss always demanding why she isn’t married/have a boyfriend #normal

So the legend steals the company credit card and books a one way flight to Minneapolis and literally brings no luggage…

Truly Magical and depressing.

REVIEW OF THE WEEK

PARTISAN is the debut feature from fellow Melbournian Ariel Kleiman! Written by bf/gf/talented freaks Ariel Kleiman and Sarah Cyngler  with exquisite cinematography by Germain McMicking for which he won the Sundance 2014 World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award: Cinematography.

The film follows the life of a troubled man Gregori (Vincent Cassel) who is living in a secret compound, with multiple women and a small crowd of children. Sheltered from everyday life, the women seem somewhat content to be cared for with their children, happy under the watchful eye of Gregori, however something much more sinister is going on. Centred around the eldest son, Alexander- Jeremy Chabriel *those eyes*  who starts fighting back when he begins to see the cracks in this flawed utopia. 

This film is so beautifully shot and despite the bleak surroundings and dark themes is lulls you into a dream like world that reveals beauty even in these moments. Vincent Cassel and Jeremy Chabriel  are so perfectly cast its outrageous.

4/5
