First Love (15)

This production ended on 28/02/2020


This film is the prolific auteur, Takashi Miike, at his most fun and anarchic, a noir-tinged yakuza film blending genres in the story of a young boxer and a call girl, who fall passionately in love while getting innocently caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme over the course of one night in Tokyo.

A first-rate cast, dynamic action, slapstick comedy and a cool animated sequence. Think Kill Bill meets Baby Driver as this carnage of chaos proves to be wildly entertaining. The Victoria Advocate
