Fortunately, the Zellners have better plans for their heroine in Kumiko's delirious, wonderfully improbable, and probably surrealistic, ending.

With sparse dialogue, the film hinges on an incredible performance from Rinko Kikuchi as office-girl outsider Kumiko, who can hurt your heart with just a little flick of her eye.
