Lying and Stealing Plot
Ivan uses Elyse, a failing movie heroine who was expelled from the business after stealing from a prominent producer, to help catch Dimitri.
Ivan travels to Dimitri’s men’s home with the FBI agent while Elyse is at the bar with Dimitri, where he subdues both of them.
Then, using another of the guys with disabilities’ phones, he sends Dimitri a signal informing him of how successfully they killed Ivan.
Dimitri is relieved when she gets the message and chooses to go back to her “mate’s place” with Elyse.
When they get home, Dimitri quickly shoots Elyse with a revolver, but Ivan stops them right away.
A Mexican standoff ensues, during which Elyse Dimitri passes out from a narcotic overdose moments before a bullet can be fired. We later learn that the gunshot was freely inserted into the wine that Dimitri had provided.
When the criminal leader’s body is delivered to the FBI office, Elyse finds herself in a position to repay her debt and comfort the antagonistic creator. The conclusion of “Lying and Stealing” takes place at a party where Ivan, Ray, and Elyse look at artwork.
The movie ends with characters being concealed from the chamber containing priceless treasures of art after Elyse causes a gas explosion to divert attention.
Ivan may not be far from ending his day of crime as he had first hoped because of the bright companion lady Elyse and his spirited brother Ray, but he also seems to have two collaborators.
But with a pretty good understanding of the illegal activities and criminally inclined individuals that the FBI spy Wilkers has been involved with, it is amazing that Ivan hadn’t been imprisoned.
The information agent Wilkers provides Ivan on two partners is his most effective covert weapon.
The agent repeatedly highlighted that his discussions with the theft suspect had “never happened,” hence they ought to always be kept private.
Ivan could have concrete evidence that the agent is more likely to face difficulties given that he leaves Ivan and his buddies alone at the film’s climax.
Elyse seldom expresses genuine joy. She also seems disillusioned by what her sleazy Italian director says and seems jaded by the movie industry and the wealthy in general.
Therefore, it seems as if Elysa may have found her calling to plunder the wealthy. She is in need. Despite the fact that he makes no promises in return, she is Ivan.
Even her multilingual skills, especially her familiarity with common expressions (but not fluency), seem more befitting of a conwoman then an actress.
