Himitsu no hanazono (My Secret Cache)

What does it take to make someone happy? Wealth? Fame? Power? For hyperactive, materialistic Sakiko, it's finding a suitcase stuffed with 500 million yen. She sets out on a manic quest to track down the case, mastering a bizarre range of activities, like rockclimbing and scuba-diving, as she goes. Her relentless pursuit, combined with her wicked sense of humor, makes for a wild satirical commentary on the human conditions of conformity, materialism and obsession.

This is a very fun, nice film. With a smart, wise mother, detached father and bratty sister watching and wondering, Sakiko loves counting money. Her whole life is about the accumulation of money. After getting a job at a bank, it is robbed and Sakiko is taken hostage because she will not let go of the suitcase full of money. All and all film offers insight to the silly side of modern life. ~Mike

The resume made me really very interested in this movie, I have no patience to watch it, and I am sure that if it was recommended here, than it is actually worth watching!Colorado
