First Love (MA 15+)

First Love movie poster

An "exhilarating cocktail of bloodbath violence and tar-black humour" from Japan's maestro of pulp, Takashi Miike.

Set over one night in Tokyo, we follow Leo, a young boxer down on his luck as he meets his ‘first love’ Monica, a callgirl and an addict but still an innocent.

Little does Leo know, Monica is unwittingly caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme, and the two are pursued through the night by a corrupt cop, a yakuza, his nemesis, and a female assassin sent by the Chinese Triads.

All their fates intertwine in spectacular Miike style, at his most fun and anarchic.

Cast: Masataka Kubota, Sakurako Konishi, Shota Sometani, Nao Omori, Becky

Director: Takashi Miike

★★★★ "brilliantly bizarre, ultra-violent yakuza caper" - GUARDIAN

★★★★ "this is Miike having fun, bombarding us with squirm-inducing violence while making us laugh and - ever so slightly - tugging on the heartstrings." - EMPIRE MAGAZINE

★★★★ "High-octane, boundary pushing fun from first frame to last" - ARTS DESK

★★★★ "Yes, it's preposterous and at times hyper-violent, but the tongue is always firmly in its cheek. Until it's cut out." - TIMES UK
