Hoping to counterfeit billions in one hot night of pursuit, three petty criminals will need more than their wits to outsmart the big boss and his ring of armed thugs – for instance, a fistful of the formidable lady Tomoko! Soon everyone is fighting over Japan’s best counterfeiter, trailed hysterically by his senile cash-savvy wife. In a hilarious series of twists and east-meets-west humour, Nakahira delivers the money in style… but to whom?

 Starring the infamous king of crime cinema Joe Shishido, Danger’s Where The Money Is! presents an outstanding example of Nakahira’s directorial versatility. With notable international influence, the film perfectly merges western criminal archetypes and slapstick action with a distinct Japanese comedic flavour. Showcasing a true master of timing, this energetic film indulges an outrageous cacophony of cultural collisions that screech to a halt with Nakahira’s signature rapid and seamless delivery.
