Daring director uses fake groping case to take a crack at Japan's legal vultures - MSN-Mainichi Daily News: "Suo is about to release his first movie in 11 years. It's going to be called 'Sore Demo Boku ha Yatteinai (I Still Didn't Do it),' a flick about a man falsely accused of groping a female commuter.

The movie traces the accused man's story as he battles his case through the courts and has the unfair verdict handed down against him upheld for political reasons in a work damning of the Japanese judiciary.

Suo started working on the movie about four years ago. He was inspired by a newspaper story about Takashi Yatabe, a company worker whose conviction for molesting a female train commuter was overturned after it was revealed that she had made up her accusation against him."
