YesAsia Editorial Description

Kentaro Otani's Yaku Sanju no Uso (a.k.a. Thirty Lies or So) is a wry romantic comedy/caper flick with a simple, but intriguing setup. After pulling off a huge score, a ragtag crew of five thieves led by the acid-tongued Saisuke (Kippei Shiina, from Calmi Cuori Appassionati, Quill and Spy Sorge) hop aboard a midnight express train to make their daring getaway. But just when they think they're in the clear, the band of conmen soon find out that a woman named Takarada (Miki Nakatani, from The Ring, Spiral, and Rikidozan) is also a passenger on the train. And get this: she just so happens to be the girl who betrayed the swindlers three years earlier, a fact sure to arouse a lot of suspicion when the money from their latest job suddenly disappears!

Rounding out the cast of this comic thriller are Satoshi Tsumabuki (Water Boys, Dragon Head), Seiichi Tanabe (Hush!, Ring 0: Birthday) and Anri Ban (Go) in crucial supporting roles. Much like the current Ocean's 11 films, Yaku Sanju no Uso plays up the romantic aspects, while still delivering the twists and turns viewers hope to see from a caper flick. Adapted from Hideo Tsuchiya's successful stage play, Yaku Sanju no Uso has the same sophisticated bite as director Kentaro Otani's previous work, 1999's Avec Mon Mari and 2002's Travail, two films in which bitter rivals get up close and personal with each other with great cinematic results. Fans of heist flicks should check out Yaku Sanju no Uso and watch as double crosses and plot twists ensue in this claustrophobic, talky piece that plays out inside the confines of a single train car! And just wait until you see the guy in the panda suit!

When even swindlers have heart Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Yaku san-jû no uso (English title: 30 Lies or So) is one of the most innovative movies I've seen from many years.

It tells the story about a group of swindlers who makes money by selling some fake goods cheating the buyers. You never know how it happens because the movie is totally focused on the feeling of the group of swindlers before and after the fraud has took place.

Love, lust, regret and forgiveness rule the train where the cheaters are travelling to go home with the money, setting up an intriguing scheme where emotions oppose to their first aim, which is obviously the money.

In the end friendship and togetherness seems to be the most important things for them when practically every member of the teams suspects each other to planning to escape with the money at the next stop.

Miki Nakatani is simply gorgeous, imho one the most beautiful woman on earth, she's also a skilled actress and singer.

Don't miss this one, it proves once again that Japan (and of course the rest of Asia) is the future of cinema.
