Thirty Lies or So (2004)
Thirty Lies or So is a Japanese movie directed by Kentaro Otani. It was released by Asmik Ace Entertainment in Japan on December 18, 2004.
Miki Nakatani leads an ensemble cast as Takarada, a member of a group of swindlers which has reunited to pull off a big caper involving down comforters, shoddy encyclopedias, and a panda suit. However, the actual scam they’re about to run takes a back seat to the trust issues between the group. In fact, most of the film is set on a cramped train.
The team originally parted ways three years ago after one of their own betrayed them, running off with the cash. Meanwhile, their fearless leader Shikata (Kippei Shiina) seems to have never recovered his confidence after that and Takarada holds a secret grudge against the buxom Imai (Anri Ban) for her possible involvement in the first betrayal. Will the team manage to get their mojo back, or fall apart all over again?
