Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter is out on VOD and digital HD today, and to celebrate Amplify Releasing has given us a behind-the-scenes clip to share with you. Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter is a darkly comedic odyssey starring Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, Pacific Rim) as Kumiko, a frustrated office worker with an imagination that transcends her boring life.
She’s obsessed with a VHS tape of a film she mistakes for a documentary, fixated on a scene where a suitcase of stolen money is buried in the frozen plains of North Dakota. Believing the scene to be real she decides to leave Tokyo, and her best friend Bunzo, to go on an epic and dangerous adventure to retrieve the cash.
Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter is on VOD today, and releases nationwide, in 70 countries, and on Blu-Ray on June 30th.
And here are a few bonus clips and the full trailer.
