Much of the comedy of this film is generated by the ungainly physical humour of Sakiko’s single minded determination, using voice-over, flashback, and other forms of reconstructed narrative such as the ‘flick book’.
Money-lover, Sakiko is abducted by bank robbers to the Aokigahara forest, famous for its confusing layout and magnetic soil that confuses compasses. There they crash and burn: only Sakiko survives, unable to forget the money that she knows survived but which everyone else thinks burned up in the crash.
