When even swindlers have a heart
13 June 2005 | by blindgSee all my reviews

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.
