First Love

Prolific Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike (Audition, 13 Assassins) returns with FIRST LOVE - a slick, neon film noir set in contemporary Tokyo.

Young boxer Leo (Masataka Kubota) is down on his luck until he meets callgirl Monica (Sakurako Konishi), and is pulled into an adventure he didn’t expect. Caught in the midst of a drug-smuggling scheme, the duo are pursued by a corrupt cop, a yakuza, his nemeses, and a female assassin….and on top of all that, they’re falling passionately in love with each other. Fates intertwine, blood is shed, and for the audience, fun is had, in Miike’s pulpy crime caper full of excess tied off with a genuine tug on the heartstrings.
