    “…its wily mix of colorful elements - romance, organized crime, slapstick and ultra-violence - makes for a bracingly weird cinematic experience.” ~ Barbara VanDenburgh, ARIZONA REPUBLIC



    “Miike delivers 108 minutes of entertainment mayhem.” ~ Katie Smith-Wong, FLICK FEST



    “‘First Love’, is the [Takashi Miike] at his most pulpy, entertaining and, well, funny.”

    ~ Brad Keefe, COLUMBUS ALIVE



    “Miike’s direction is visceral, finding the filmmaker not only completely invested in this narrative but also willing to break from his formula at the drop of a hat.” ~ Joshua Brunsting, THE CRITERIONCAST

    FIRST LOVE



    Iconic Filmmaker Takashi Miike’s Explosive, Noir-Tinged Film

    Debuts on Digital, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack & DVD February 11

    PLANO, TEXAS (January 13, 2020) – Prolific auteur Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Blade of the Immortal, 13 Assassins) is at his most fun and anarchic with the noir-tinged violent yakuza film FIRST LOVE, debuting on Digital, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD February 11 from Well Go USA Entertainment. The wild, genre-blending story follows 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. FIRST LOVE stars Masataka Kubota (13 Assassins), Sakurako Konishi (Fancy) and Shota Sometaniin (Legend of the Demon Cat).


    Synopsis:

    When a duplicitous scheme by the low-level yakuza, Kase (Shota Sometani) goes hilariously wrong, a terminally ill boxer, Leo (Masataka Kubota), and a disturbed drug addicted call girl, Monica (Sakurako Konishi), find themselves innocently caught in the crosshairs of two warring gangs. Over the course of the increasingly ludicrous night, the two fall passionately in love, while the hail of bullets and blood fall quietly in the background. From prolific auteur Takashi Miike, this noir-tinged, violent yakuza film, is Miike at his most fun and anarchic.


    COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Japan



    FIRST LOVE has a runtime of approximately 109 minutes and is not rated.

    Drat and I thought when seeing this thread that it was the 1977 film with Susan Dey & William Katt.

    Let down for you, perhaps but exciting news for me! :) I saw it during its brief theatrical run last year and had a great time with it. A real rollercoaster ride!
