First Love


Blood, gore, severed heads and a tender love story at its heart. Takashi Miike (Audition, 13 Assassins, Ichi The Killer) is back!

One night in Tokyo and Leo, a young boxer down on his luck meets his ‘first love’ Monica, a call girl and an addict but still an innocent. Selling her body to pay a debt.

Unwittingly caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme. Leo and Monica find themselves pursued throughout the night by a corrupt cop, a yakuza, his nemesis and a female assassin hired by the Chinese Triads.

Prepare for unadulterated mayhem and carnage and fall for FIRST LOVE.
