Storyline

In December 2001 the world's media focused on the small town of Fargo, North Dakota, where the body of Takako Konishi was found in the woods by a hunter. The media reported that she had left Japan with the misunderstanding that the Coen brother's "Fargo" really was a true story and that there was a stash of money hidden somewhere in the snow on a road by a tree. This documentary traces the background to the story and finds that the media, quick to jump on a "funny" story of foolishness, had gotten the story totally wrong. Written by bob the moo

Hipe but good movie
9 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK OK just an FYI.. Urban Legend!! Actually 'Fargo' legend came from a Police officer who admitted he did not Speak Japanese and see did not speak English.. Fact she had just came from Singapore were her American lover (from Fargo) had dumped her... check out the real story here: https://vimeo.com/66512803

But saying that .. this is a watchable and entertaining film.. a bit 'artsy' in filming anyone who enjoys dazzling imagery will love it!

But surly the writers had the real story.. perhaps being truthful and stating this was based on 'Urban Legend' or a end statement with some truth would have left this film more enjoyable without the bad taste left in my mouth... Great first watch.. after you research and discover the truth she was not looking for Fargo Treasure but instead was a heart broken woman heading to her lover's home town to commit suicide... you don't want to see it again.

Seems selling Urban Legend is more entertaining... 'commentary'
