Nagasawa Masami & Takahashi Issei to team up in new movie "Uso wo aisuru onna"

Nagasawa Masami and Takahashi Issei will be starring in the new movie "Uso wo aisuru onna" (The woman who loves lies) directed by Nakae Kazuhito which will be shown in cinemas next year. The two of them last worked together 14 years ago in the 2004 movie "Sekai no chuushin de, ai wo sakebu" when she was 16 and he was 23 but have collaborated in CMs such as the ongoing dTV CM where they play a married couple living far apart as the wife lives in outer space and the husband lives in Tokyo. Nagasawa commented that when they first worked together, Takahashi was already a well-respected senior actor so she is very happy to work with him again. Likewise, Takahashi said that he got to see how a young girl like her had grown up to be a charming woman and is looking forward to acting opposite her in this film.

In this love story with a tinge of mystery, Nagasawa plays Kawahara Yukari, a career woman working at a major beverage manufacturer who has been living with her medical intern boyfriend Koide Kippei (Takahashi) for the past 5 years and has plans to marry him soon. One day, Kippei collapses due to a subarachnoid hemorrhage and slips into a coma. To Yukari's surprise, when the police comes knocking on her door, she finds out that everything she has known about Kippei is a lie as his name, occupation, driving licence and family register are all fake. While trying to find out what kind of man she has loved, she heads to his supposed hometown on an island in the Setouchi Inland sea where she gets help from a private detective Kaibara Takumi played by Yoshida Kotaro to investigate the truth.

Filming began on 12 March and will be done at places such as Imabari City in Ehime Prefecture and Onomichi City in Hiroshima Prefecture. It is expected to be wrapped up at the end of April.
